Temperature Analysis in Durability Test of the Viscous Damper
The cylinder is prone to be damaged due to temperature increasing in vibration control and durability testing process of viscous damper. In order to avoid the overheating generated by long working hours, which resulting in a viscous liquid water evaporation and leading to a abrupt increase in internal pressure inside the cylinder, the CFD software Fluent was used to simulate the durability test process of the oil film, where the heat was easy to generate and suggestion for improving the viscous damper was proposed.
