dc.description.abstractThe presentation will cover fluid film bearing fundamental theory and design criteria. Since the subject is extensive, the design portion will be restricted to hydrodynamic (self-acting) bearing mode using liquid lubricants. This is the condition found in the majority of turbomachinery in the field, and is of most general interest. The four basic fluid film bearing modes and principles of bearing operation will be described. The various types of thrust and journal bearings will be identified and discussed as to their operation and use. The design criteria will cover such subjects as load capacity, power loss, temperature, speed, turbulence, misalignment, and vibrations. This will include the most recent available information for obtaining maximum bearing performance. Many references will be included for more detailed study. The concluding portion will deal with the pitfalls and problems in applying the bearing design principles and types, with actual field examples. This will cover operating conditions, bearing type selection, and physical design and installation, what must be done or avoided to translate a promising bearing application into a practical and successful reality.
