Hydrodynamic Bearing Design and Analysis

Mechcon Corporation, in addition to general rotor dynamics capabilities, also offers assistance in the design and analysis of hydrodynamic high-speed bearings. The expertise covers both fixed and tilting pad bearing geometries typically used in high-speed rotating equipment. The accurate prediction of the bearing dynamic characteristics in matrix form, namely stiffness and damping, is essential in the analysis of high-speed flexible rotors. The performance of the bearing itself, in terms of fluid-film thickness, temperature, pressure, and losses is equally important for the proper operation of rotating machinery. Mechcon Corporation can provide assistance in the design of the bearing system in conjunction with the development of the rotor.
