Experimental Investigation of Effect of Water Emulsion on Load Carrying Capacity of Hydrodynamic Journal Bearing

Authors(1) :-Tushar P. Gundarneeya

Industrial machinery with high horsepower and high loads, such as steam turbines, centrifugal compressors, pumps and motors, utilize journal bearings as rotor supports. In this paper Load Carrying capacity of Journal Bearing is studied by considering Sommerfeld and Reynolds boundary conditions. Solution of two dimensional Reynolds equations is done using Finite difference method and graph is obtained with help of MATLAB. Experiment work is carried out for investigation of effect of water emulsion on Load Carrying Capacity of journal bearing by considering different water ratio on Hydrodynamic Journal Bearing Apparatus. Experimental results are compared for effect of water emulsion on Load Carrying Capacity for same speed and load condition.
