• EFFECTS OF VISCOSITY VARIATION IN SQUEEZE FILM LUBRICATION OF CIRCULAR STEPPED PLATES

K. THANGAVELU*, S. SAMPATHRAJ, V. SUDHA

Abstract


In this paper an effort has been made to study the squeeze film effects of two circular stepped plates.  The generalized form of Reynolds equation governing the flow for two symmetrical surfaces are used to obtain the velocity profiles of the lubricant. The squeeze film pressure and the load carrying capacity are analysed to find the squeeze time.  Theoretical results on the effects of velocity slip and viscosity variations are also presented for the circular stepped plates.


Keywords


squeeze pressure, velocityslip, circular stepped plates.
