Analysis of Fitted Bearings under Second Order Rotatory Theory of Hydrodynamic LubricationDownload PDF
The second order rotatory theory of hydrodynamic lubrication was founded on the expression obtained by retaining the terms containing first and second powers of rotation number in the extended generalized Reynolds equation. In the present paper, there are derivations of new equations for pressure and load capacity and some new excellent fundamental solutions with the help of geometrical figures, expressions, calculated tables and graphs for the fitted bearings in the second order rotatory theory of hydrodynamic lubrication. The analysis of equations for pressure and load capacity, tables and graphs reveal that pressure and load capacity are not independent of viscosity and increases slightly with viscosity. Also the pressure and load capacity both increases with increasing values of rotation number. In the absence of rotation, the equation of pressure and load capacity gives the classical solutions of the classical theory of hydrodynamic lubrication. The relevant tables and graphs confirm these important investigations in the present paper.
