UNIT – I

Introduction

Nature of surfaces and contact, surface topography, friction and wear mechanisms and effect of lubricants, methods

of fluid film formation.

Selection of rolling element bearings

Nominal life, static and dynamic capacity, equivalent load, probabilities of survival, cubic mean load, bearing

mounting details, preloading of bearings, condition monitoring using shock pulse method.

UNIT – II

Hydrodynamic bearings

Fundamentals of fluid film formation – Reynold’s equation; Hydrodynamic journal bearings – Sommerfeld number –

performance parameters – optimum bearing with maximum load capacity – friction – heat generated and heat

dissipated. Hydrodynamic thrust bearings: Raimondi and Boyd solution for hydrodynamic thrust bearings – fixed and

tilting pads, single and multiple pad bearings – optimum condition with largest minimum film thickness.

UNIT – III

Hydrostatic bearings

Thrust bearings – pad coefficients – restriction – optimum film thickness – Journal bearings – design procedures.

Aerostatic bearings: thrust bearings and journal bearings, design procedure.

Dry rubbing bearings

Porous metal bearings and oscillatory journal bearings, qualitative approach only.

UNIT – IV

Lubrication

Choice of lubricant type, oil, grease and solid lubricants, additives, lubrication systems and their selection, selection

of pump, filters, piping design, oil changing and oil conservation.

UNIT – V

Seals

Different types, mechanical seals, lip seals, packed glands, soft piston seals, mechanical piston rod packing,

labyrinth seals and throttling bushes, oil flinger rings and drain grooves, selection of mechanical seals.

Failure of tribological components

Failure analysis of plain bearings, rolling bearings, gears and seals, wear analysis using SOAP and Ferrography.
