Investigating the effect of texturing on the performance of Journal Bearing

Authors(3) :-Sagar V. Patel, Amit M. Trivedi, Mayur G. Patel

In the present paper an attempt has been made to assay the effect of producing texturing surfaces on the pressure profile of journal bearing which improves its hydrodynamic performance. The parameters that affects the bearing performance selected for the study are speeds of shaft, loading conditions and different textures of bearings and shafts. During the experiments by varying above said parameters, its pressure profile generated for each combination with the help of manometer tubes and then comparison needs to be carried out.
