Journal Bearing Apparatus
EEE Journal Bearing apparatus for investigating the distribution of pressure in slide bearings illustrates the principle of hydrodynamic lubrication. The distribution of pressure and the carrying capacity can be determined on a sliding bearing model at different bearing loads and speeds. The sliding bearing consists of a bearing journal driven by an electrical motor and the freely moving bearing housing. The bearing is loaded with different, interchangeable weights. The setup contains manometer tubes, dc motor, dc drive to control speed, set of weights, oil tank, Journal bearing along with the shaft.
