Abstract: Significant improvement in load capacity, wear resistance, friction coefficient etc. of tribological mechanical components can be obtained by forming regular micro-surface structure in the form of micro-dimples on their surfaces. A feasibility study was performed both theoretically and experimentally using the Laser Surface Texturing (LST) technique to produce the micro-dimples. Each micro-dimple can serve either as a micro-hydrodynamic bearing in cases of full or mixed lubrication or as a micro-reservoir for lubricant in cases of starved lubrication conditions. Theoretical models were developed, and laboratory tests were performed, to investigate the potential of LST in tribological components like mechanical seals, piston rings and thrust bearings. In the entire laboratory tests, friction was substantially reduced with LST compared to the non-textured components.

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.

Abstract: Water lubricated silicon carbide is expected to be widely used for sliding bearings and mechanical seals in hydraulic systems since it is environmentally friendly and saves energy. The purpose of this study is to find the optimum surface texture to improve the load carrying capacity of SiC bearings working in water. Micro-pits, evenly distributed in a square array, were selected as the texture pattern, and formed on one of the contact surfaces by reactive ion etching. Experiments, which simulate the working condition of thrust bearings, were carried out to evaluate the effects of the micro-pits on the critical load of the transition of the lubrication mode from hydrodynamic to mixed. The results are summarized in the form of a load carrying capacity map. It was found that an optimum geometric and distributive range of micro-pits exists, where the load carrying capacity can be increased at least twice over that of an untextured surface.  2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
