Axle burn-off and stack-up force analyses of a railroad roller bearing using the finite element method (1996)Railroad bearing-related failures are a primary concern to the railway industry. A bearing-related failure can cause derailment and result in millions of dollars in damage. The bearings used in railway applications are ...
Dynamic and quasi-static contact and scratch analysis of micro-nanoscale thin solid films with application to magnetic storage hard disk drives (2010-01-06)With current demand for decreased size of micro/nanoscale systems, coupled with increased mobility, critical understanding of the ensuing contact or impact related behavior of thin solid films used in these systems is of ...
(1988)Elastohydrodynamic (EHD) lubrication is a lubrication process which usually occurs in concentrated load-supporting or load-transmitting contacts. Such contacts exist, for example, in rolling-element bearings, gears and ...
Scuffing and wear of engineering materials under different lubrication regimes in the presence of environmentally friendly refrigerants (2011-01-14)In recent years, the air-conditioning industry has been focusing on alternative refrigerants for the replacement of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) due to environmental regulations. HFCs refrigerants have been widely used in the ...
(2013-05-24)To meet the higher performance requirements of today’s air-conditioning and refrigeration (ACR) compressors, their operating conditions have been getting harsher under higher speed and load, thus making tribological ...
