2008 (English)In: Proceedings of the 9th Biennial ASME Conference on Engineering Systems Design and Analysis, ESDA 2008: July 7-9, 2008, Haifa, Israel, New York, NY: American Society of Mechanical Engineers , 2008, Vol. 3, 561-568 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Dynamic coefficients for a lemon bore journal bearing with a compliant PTFE surface are computed. An efficient method for the calculation of bearing dynamic coefficients proposed by Lund  has been extended to compliant bearings. Comparison with a rigid babbitted lemon bore journal bearing in terms of dynamic coefficients and stability is given and discussed. It is shown that it is important to consider perturbations of both the oil film and the compliant lining to obtain realistic results. It is also shown that stability of compliant bearings is improved at some eccentricities compared with conventional babbitted bearings.
