Abstract:

The key role which bearings play in the performance and durability and transmissions has long been recognized by designers. Although dramatic advances have been made in bearing and lubrication technology during the past few decades, there continue to be problems, both in performance prediction and in performance limitations. These problems are manifest in the life and durability of engines and transmissions in current use, and also in the limits they place on the design of future engines and transmissions. Subjects covered Rolling element bearings-design, materials and lubrication Gear lubrication Elastohydrodynamics Hydrodynamic, hydrostatic and hybrid bearing design and lubrication Squeeze film dampers Lubricant deposition studies Gas film bearings Magnetic bearings Diagnostics and health monitoring of lubrication systems Rotor dynamics Engine lubrication system design, and Helicopter transmission efficiency as influenced by lubricant composition.
