Abstract


In this paper, the elasto-hydrodynamic (EHD) performance of partial journal bearings has been studied. A numerical analysis has been conducted using the ANSYS Workbench (17.2) platform to investigate the performance of partial journal bearings. The lubricant used is considered Newtonian and incompressible fluid that flows steadily under laminar conditions, while the bearing material is assumed to be elastic, isotropic with smooth surface conditions. In the current FSI analysis, the lubricant flow has been predicted according to the finite_ volume method, while the finite element method has been adopted to compute the deformation and stress in the bearing surface.
