A Thermo-Elasto-Hydrodynamic (TEHD) Computational Analysis of Tilting Pad Thrust Bearings: Analytical and FE Pad Structure Models
Work in 2018 extends an earlier (2017) single-pad, laminar flow thermohydrodynamic (THD) model, into a multiple-pad, turbulent flow thermoelastohydrodynamic (TEHD) model for the prediction of the static and dynamic force ...
On the Static Load Performance of a Large Size, Heavily Loaded Spring Supported Thrust Bearing
(Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers, 2019-02-18)
This abstract describes a thermo-elasto-hydrodynamic (TEHD) analysis for prediction of the static load performance of a large size spring-supported thrust bearing (SSTB) operating at a mean surface speed of 20 m/s and 4 ...
Appendix 10. Operational Behavioral Definitions
Towards the Application of Uncertainty Analysis in Architectural Design Decision-Making
To this day, proper handling of uncertainties -including unknown variables in primary stages of a design, an actual climate data, occupants` behavior, and degradation of material properties over the time- remains as a ...
Thermo Hydrodynamic (THD) Computational Analysis For Tilting Pad Thrust Bearings (TPTBs)
The report details a thermo-hydrodynamic (THD) analysis for the static and dynamic force performance of TPTBs. The goal is to deliver a modern predictive tool for TPTBs to be further integrated into the XLTRC2 software ...
Finite element formulation of variable thickness plates
The intense competition between companies especially in automotive industries, pushes the engineers and designers to safer and cheaper products every day. Multi-variable and multi-strength blanks known as Tailor Welded ...
Development of a Risk Based Inherent Safety Index Using an Integrated Approach
(American Institute of Chemical Engineers, 2018-04-25)
The growing demand for petrochemical products and the implementation of new process technologies have made the petrochemical plants more complex; therefore, it becomes more challenging to manage the risk. Traditionally, ...
The Negative Impact of Solar Reflections Caused by Reflective Buildings’ Facades: Case Study of the Nasher Museum in Texas
(The 2019 Sustainable Built Environment Conference Proceedings, 2019-05-22)
Large reflective facades in buildings can cause severe visual discomfort due to the reflection of sunlight falling on buildings' surfaces. These intense reflections can cause a intolerable glare and contribute to overheating ...
