Abstract

Surface texturing of the lubricated bearing has proven to improve the hydrodynamic performance. The present paper analyzed the effect of surface texturing on the covergent journal bearing with computational fluid dynamic (CFD) approach. The eccentricity ratio, the ratio of textured depth and surface area are the main parameter research. It was shown that for the eccentricity ratio of 0.2, the surface texturing improves the hydrodynamic performance lubrication by increasing the load support. On the otherwise, for the eccentricity ratio of 0.8, the surface texturing does not improve the lubrication performance, even under certain condition, it decreases the lubrication performance of journal bearing.
