A Study of Static Performance of Fixed Inclined Slider Bearings – A Power Law Model|
Oladinde, M.H.; Edokpia, R.O. & Unuigbe, A.I.
In this paper, the performance of a fixed inclined slider bearing whose surfaces are lubricated
by a non Newtonian power law lubricant is investigated numerically. Based on the power law model, the
modified Reynolds equation is derived and solved using the finite element method. The effect of flow index on
pressure distribution, load capacity, maximum pressure is presented graphically.
