Paper Title:
Liquid Film Features Analysis on Mechanical Seals with Micro-Pore Face by CFD
  Abstract

The six kinds of different models were simulated by FLUENT software under certain circumstances. As a result, their pressure distributions and liquid film opening force with different thickness were obtained. The relationship between liquid film thickness and opening force was obtained by least square fitting. And then the relationship between stiffness and liquid film thickness was calculated and analyzed. The result shows that: seal opening force and liquid film stiffness decrease as the liquid film thickness increase, this simulation results is identical with the theoretical data. In larger film thickness range, the opening force is larger, and so was the liquid film stiffness, which provide the basis for seal optimization design and the stable operation.
