Abstract

The static characteristic of misaligned three-axial water-lubricated journal bearing in the turbulent regime is analyzed for groove angles 36� and 18�. Ng and Pan’s turbulence model is applied to study the turbulence effects in the journal bearing. The static parameters such as load-carrying capacity, friction coefficient, and side leakage are found for different degrees of misalignment. The change in flow regime of the lubricant from laminar to turbulent and the increase in misalignment, improved the load capacity of the bearing. For lightly loaded bearings, the friction coefficient of the bearing increased with the increase in Reynolds number
