Selection And Design Of Tilting Pad And Fixed Lobe Journal Bearings For Optimum Turbo Rotordyanmics
MetadataShow full item record
Current trends in bearing designs for turbomachinery are reviewed in terms of manufacturing tolerances and overall design considerations. Discussion of both fixed bore and tilting pad bearings with regard to forced response and stability leads to conclusions and recommendations for optimum rotor dynamic performance of turborotors. Examples of design studies of actual rotor systems are presented and discussed to illustrate the optimization procedures and recommendations.
