Title: Developing and validating a model to understand mixed lubrication regions for fluid-film bearings
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00014-12-M-0366
Award Amount: $79,929.00
 

Abstract:

Under this effort, Sentient will develop mixed-EHL models to predict the performance of fluid film bearings for submarine applications. The models will consider critical design and operational parameters such as component geometry and surface finish, start up and shut down speeds/loads, and lubrication properties to predict torque, film thickness, and associated wear/efficiency. The result will be a scalable design and analysis tool to be used in the evaluation of full scale fluid film bearing components.
