Abstract:

Research was performed to develop a rigorous treatment for the film rupture process in the squeeze-film damper. The short bearing analysis was generalized to accommodate a consistent treatment of the rupture domain for a squeeze-film damper, which is undergoing a circular orbit motion either in a submerged condition or with one end subjected to a pressurized feed condition.
