Abstract:

The Swing-Pad bearing is a new lubricated sliding-surface bearing. The surfaces are kept separate by fluid-dynamic forces produced by the swinging action of the bearing pads. The standard Reynolds equations of lubrication theory are solved for a simple example of this bearing and simple formulas are obtained for predicting the bearing performance. Author
