Journal Bearing With Hydrodynamic Lubrication
In hydrodynamic bearings, the shaft and the bearing shell are separated from each other during operation by a supporting lubricating film. The pressure in the lubricating film in hydrodynamic journal bearings is generated by the relative motion between bearing shell and shaft. The position of the shaft in relation to the speed and the load is important for an analysis of the tribological process in the bearing shell of a journal bearing.
