The Numerical Simulation of Pure-Oil Lubrication Journal Bearing
Viscosity-temperature effect is an important factor for journal bearing calculation, but many scholars ignored the effect of viscosity-temperature, which may produce some error. The simulation of journal bearing oil film flow field is done using CFD, and the viscosity-temperature and cavitation effect have been consider. The results shows that the capacity and temperature rise of the oil film will be overrated when using the constant viscosity of oil. The vapor distribution and static characteristics of the journal bearing have been calculate at last.
