Distribution of Hydrodynamic Pressure in Slide Bearings Applying Lubricants of Different Viscosity
The paper presents the results of tests on the distribution of hydrodynamic pressure in relation to the viscosity of a lubricant, the rotational speed of a journal and bearing load. Two different lubricants were selected for taking tests: base oil SN-150 and mineral engine oil. The distribution of hydrodynamic pressure was determined employing a device constructed for this particular purpose. It has been proved that the type of the lubricant, bearing load and, to a lesser extent, the rotational speed of the journal affect the distribution of hydrodynamic pressure.
