Prediction of Rotor Dynamic Coefficients in Gas Lubricated .

A finite element foil bearing model that incorporates radial and circumferential deflections of a corrugated sub-foil into the prediction of rotor dynamic coefficients is presented. The corrugated sub-foil is treated as a continuous structure that supports the top-foil. Radial and circumferential deflections are coupled in the sub-foil model.

Analysis of gas foil bearings integrating FE top foil mode

The GFB computational tools integrating the 1D and 2D FE top foil structural models, as well as the earlier simple elastic foundation model , predict the static and dynamic force performance of the test GFB. The 2D FE model uses a mesh of 78 and 10 elements in the circumferential and axial directions, respectively.

Improvements to the Analysis of Gas Foil Bearings: Integration of Top Foil 1D and 2D Structural Mode

More complex models couple directly the elastic deformations of the top foil to the bump underlying structure as well as to the hydrodynamics of the gas film. This paper details two FE models for the top foil supported on bump strips, one considers a 2D shell anisotropic structure and the other a 1D beam-like structure.

Analysis of Elastic Deformation of Axial Foil Hydrodynamic .

In this paper, an elastic deformation of the axial foil hydrodynamic thrust bearing used in 100KW gas turbine generator is studied. The finite element model of the foil hydrodynamic thrust bearing was established using Solidworks and ANSYS. The foil hydrodynamic thrust bearing which considered foil deformation was analyzed and calculated based on the results of the approximate calculation.

Design Optimization of Gas Foil Thrust Bearings for .

The aim of the present study is to develop a design guideline to improve the load capacity of gas foil thrust bearings (GFTBs). The Reynolds equation for an isothermal isoviscous ideal gas calculates the gas film pressure.

Identification of dynamic properties of radial air-foil .

Air-foil bearings (AFBs) are self acting hydrodynamic bearings made from sheet metal foils comprised of at least two layers. The innermost “top foil” layer traps a gas pressure film that supports a load while the layer or layers underneath provide an elastic foundation. Air-foil bearings are currently used in many commercial applications, both terrestrial and aerospace.
