TL;DR: In this article, the potential use of a new technology of laser surface texturing (LST) in parallel thrust bearings is theoretically investigated, where the surface texture has the form of micro-dimples with pre-selected diameter, depth, and area density.

Abstract: The potential use of a new technology of laser surface texturing (LST) in parallel thrust bearings is theoretically investigated. The surface texture has the form of micro-dimples with pre-selected diameter, depth, and area density. It can be applied to only a portion of the bearing area (partial LST) or the full bearing area (full LST). Optimum parameters of the dimples, and best LST mode, are found in order to obtain maximum load carrying capacity for a thrust bearing having parallel mating surfaces. A comparison is made with optimum linear and stepped sliders showing that parallel LST sliders can provide similar load carrying capacity.

^{1}TL;DR: In this article, two different forms of Reynolds-type equation corresponding to two different types of surface roughness are developed and the mathematical form of these equations is similar but not identical to the form of the Reynolds equation governing the behaviour of smooth, deterministic bearing surfaces.

Abstract: This paper deals with hydrodynamic aspects of rough bearing surfaces. On the basis of stochastic theory two different forms of Reynolds-type equation corresponding to two different types of surface roughnesses are developed.It is shown that the mathematical form of these equations is similar but not identical to the form of the Reynolds equation governing the behaviour of smooth, deterministic bearing surfaces.To illustrate the functional effects of surface roughness the influence on the operating characteristics of a plane pad, no side leakage slider bearing is analysed.It is shown that surface roughness may considerably influence the operating characteristics of bearings and that the direction of the influence depends upon the type of roughness assumed. The effects are not, however, critically dependent upon the detailed form of the distribution function of the roughness heights.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors measured the drag on spheres and disks moving rectilinearly through an incompressible fluid and used hydrogen bubble flow visualization to relate these forces to the unsteady wake flows.

Abstract: The drag on spheres and disks moving rectilinearly through an incompressible fluid has been measured for Reynolds numbers (Re) from 5 to 100,000. Test models were mounted on a carriage which rode along a linear air bearing track system. Tests were performed by towing the models through a channel filled with glycerine-water mixtures. Forces and moments on the models were sensed by strain gage transducers; hydrogen bubble flow visualization was utilized in relating these forces to the unsteady wake flows. Steady drag results agreed with existing data except for the disk at 100 < Re < 1000, in which the drag coefficient values were up to 50% below the level of existing data; drag force unsteadiness during steady motion was always <5% for the sphere and <3% for the disk. Sphere drag measurements under constant acceleration from rest showed the apparent mass concept to be valid (at high Re) until the sphere had traveled approximately one diameter, after which the quasi-steady drag (based on instantaneous velocity) showed good agreement with the actual drag. Interference effects of the sting supports used in these tests are discussed.
