Transient Analysis of Air/Oil Two-Phase Flow in Bearing Chamber under the Periodic Boundary Conditions
School of Mechanical Engineering, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi’an, 710072, China
The air/oil two-phase flow is extremely complex in the aero-engine bearing chamber, so the comprehensive understanding of the flow phenomenon is helpful to improve the design of the lubrication and heat exchange system. In this paper, transient CFD simulation is developed to analyse the air/oil two-phase flow in the bearing chamber. The velocity and temperature distributions of air and oil with time and space are discussed. The results show that under the periodic conditions, the velocity and temperature of the air and oil in the bearing chamber present quasi periodic characteristics. And the velocity and temperature distribution of air/oil two-phase flow in bearing chamber is independent with time in the bearing chamber. The research work will contribute to understand the nonlinear characteristics of air/oil two-phase flow in the bearing chamber.
