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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
UNCERTAINTY AND SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS USING BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING (An Energy Analysis Test Case)
(the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA), Hong Kong, 2019-04-15)
Building design decision-making is associated with uncertainties due to variations over time and unpredictable parameters. There is a growing demand for probabilistic methods, i.e., uncertainty and sensitivity analyses ...
A case study for sensitivity-based building energy optimization
(ARCC Conference Repository, 2019-05-26)
Building design optimization process is associated with uncertainties due to climate change, unpredictable occupant behavior, and physical degradation of building material over time. The inherent uncertainties in the ...
