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. Scheduled for Presentation at the 58th Annual Meeting in New York City April 28–May 1, 2003

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.
