Abstract

Some bearings operate in mixed-lubrication regime due to the low rotational speed and the heavy load and misalign due to shaft's gravity. For large bearings, the maximum film thickness is much larger than minimum nominal film thickness and turbulence may locally develop. This paper proposes an approach to analyze misaligned mixed-lubrication bearing considering turbulence. Based on the average flow model proposed by Patir and Cheng and the Ng-Pan turbulence model, a generalized average Reynolds equation is derived. The calculation procedure is established by finite difference method. The results show that turbulence remarkably increases friction coefficient, slightly increases the minimum nominal film thickness, and decreases the transition speed from mixed-lubrication regime to hydrodynamic lubrication regime.
