Influence of inlet hole position in hydrostatic bearing recess using CFD simulation
Androvič, Dominik ; Svoboda, Petr (referee) ; Michalec, Michal (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with the influence of inlet hole position in hydrostatic bearing recess in combination with lubricating film tilting using CFD simulation in ANSYS Fluent software. Before the investigation, encapsulation of hydrostatic bearing, CFD simulation and research of hydrostatic bearings was implemented. For investigation of ours the analytical reference model of an axial hydrostatic bearing based on recommended design parameters was created. The main parameters of interest maximal recess pressure and load capacity of bearing were emerged from analytic solution. Subsequently, the maximal recess pressure and load capacity of the bearing were computed using CFD simulation for selected position of the inlet hole and the lubricating film tilt. The results indicate that the load capacity of the bearing is decreasing with the increasing lubricating film tilt. However, in case of alteration of inlet hole position even combined with selected lubricating film tilts no significant changes in maximal recess pressure or load capacity of the bearing with changing in position of inlet hole has been observed. The obtained results might be used to improve the design of hydrostatic bearings.
