Stiffness and damping coefficients of 3-axial groove water lubricated bearing using perturbation technique

Ranjan, V., Pai, R., & Hargreaves, D. (2006) Stiffness and damping coefficients of 3-axial groove water lubricated bearing using perturbation technique. In 5th EDF and LMS Poitiers Workshop 'Bearing Behaviour Under Unusual Operating Conditions', Futurescope, 5th October 2006.


A Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) approach is used to model fluid flow in a journal bearing with three equi-spaced axial grooves and supplied with water from one end. Water is subjected to both velocity (Couette) & pressure induced (Poiseuille) flow. The working fluid passing through the bearing clearance generates driving force components that may increase the unstable vibration of the rotor. It is important to know the accurate rotor dynamic force component for predicting the instability of rotor bearing systems. In this paper a study has been made to obtain the stiffness and damping coefficients of 3 axial groove bearing using Perturbation technique.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
