A Simulation Study of Recessed Type Hydrostatic Journal Bearing
Department of Power Mechanical Engineering, National Tsing-Hua University, Hsinchu 300, Taiwan
In this paper, a simulation model is established to study effects of the bearing system parameters on bearing performance. The static performance (such as load capacity, stiffness and flow) about various dimensions of multi-recess type hydrostatic journal bearings with constant-resistant restrictor compensation was investigated. The parameters studied includes length/diameter ratio, number of recess, recess length ratio, recess width ratio, initial ratio between recess pressure to supply pressure, and eccentricity.
