The software package “BEARINGS V6.1” is capable of facilitating comprehensive evaluations of fluid-film bearings. Practically any bearing or bearing system available in the industry can be analyzed with one of the bearing solution modules. The fluid-film bearing modules JURNBR, HYBCBR, TILTBR, and THRSBR solve the lubrication problem in two dimensions eliminating any approximation typically associated with one dimensional analysis or with look-up table methods.
Complete performance predictions of hydrodynamic, hydrostatic, and hybrid lubricated journal, conical and thrust bearings operating in the laminar and/or turbulent regime can be generated. Simulation capabilities include effects as cavitation, misalignment, pressurized boundaries, pressurized grooved feeding system, pressurized nozzle feeding system, surface/structural deviation, and lubricant feed circuitry (JURNBR, HYBCBR) with specified pressures or restrictors (capillary, orifice, or flow control valve), groove geometry and chamfers.
Results generated with BEARINGS modules include:
Configurations and important features that can be evaluated by the BEARINGS modules are:
Fixed Geometry Cylindrical and Conical Journal Bearings (JURNR & HYBCBR)
Tilting-Pad Journal Bearings (TILTBR)
Fixed and Tilting-Pad Geometry Thrust Bearings (THRSBR)
