QUESTION: 15

Assertion (A): In steady rotating condition the journal inside a hydrodynamic journal bearing remains floating on the oil film.

Reason (R): The hydrodynamic pressure developed in steady rotating conditions in journal bearings balances the load on the journal

Solution:

The film pressure created by the moving surface itself pulling the lubricant into a wedge shaped zone at a velocity sufficiently high to create the necessary pressure required to separate the surface against the load on the bearings.

QUESTION: 30

A system involves four identical ball bearings, each subjected to a radial load of 2500 N.

The dynamic load carrying capacity of the bearing, so as to select it from the manufacturer’s catalogue based on 90% reliability will be

Solution:

P = 2500 N

Reliability of the system = 0.82

Hence reliability of each bearing = [0.82]¼
