Abstract:

This design handbook presents data and methods for use in analyzing the dynamical performance of a rotor supported in fluid film type bearings. The data are given in form of design charts covering 1 The dynamic bearing coefficients 2 The onset of hydrodynamic instability and 3 The critical speeds and the unbalance response of a simple rotor-bearing system. The design charts are in dimensionless form and cover a wide range of bearing geometries and operating conditions. Several different types of fluid film bearings are considered together with various forms of lubrication.
