High Efficiency Fluid Film Thrust Bearings For Turbomachinery
MetadataShow full item record
Fluid film thrust bearings in use on high speed high capacity turbomachinery absorb a great amount of energy in performing their task of positioning rotors. A review of thrust bearing fundamentals along with the latest design concepts briefly outline how thrust bearing performance can be substantially improved. The major improvements come from selection of materials and methods of lubrication.
