A Simplified Approach for Cavitation Prediction in Hydrodynamic Journal Bearings 930689

Erosion damage in engine bearings is becoming a major issue in premature bearing failure. Its occurrence is very difficult to predict at the design stage. This paper presents a simple mathematical technique based on an Eulerian approach that can predict some types of cavitation prone regions on a bearing surface.
