Effect of Solid Particle on TEHL under Line Contact with Solid-Liquid Lubricant


Article Preview

The two infinitely long surfaces in line contact under thermoelastohydrodynamic lubrication with solid-liquid lubricants were investigated. The time-dependent modified Reynolds equation elasticity equation and the adiabatic energy equation have been formulated and solved numerically with initial conditions using multi-grid multi-level method with full approximation technique. The characteristics of the two surfaces in line contact under thermoelastohydrodynamic lubrication were presented as; film pressure, film temperature and oil film thickness profiles. The results of solid-liquid lubricants with micro-particle and nano-particle under thermal elastohydrohynamic lubrication were compared with the case of pure liquid lubricant.
