Experimental Research of Characteristics of Fluid-Induced Force in Eccentric Seal

This paper sets up a dynamic analysis model for cylinder-seal system. A new identification method for fluid-induced force and stiffness coefficients in eccentric seal is presented. The study shows that the system stability decreases with increasing cross-coupled stiffness in a certain range. Beyond this range, the system will be destabilized. Influences of rotating speed, inlet pressure, eccentricity and clearance on fluid-induced force were tested in the rig. It was found that a large tangential fluid-induced force was produced in the direction perpendicular to the eccentric displacement of rotor. The difference between the tangential and radial fluid-induced force became larger and larger with the increasing rotating speeds. Under the action of the seal force, the logarithmic decrement descended with increasing rotating speeds, and the stability of the system decreased. These effects became more and more serious for higher inlet pressure and tighter clearance.
