Experimental wear evaluation of starved oil-lubricated heavily loaded, oscillating journal bearings
2009 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Wear of starved oil-lubricated heavily loaded, oscillating journal bearings, which operates at low sliding speed and under dynamic load, was studied. These bearings were normally intermittently lubricated by grease or oil. No distinct difference in wear rate could be discerned between the CuSn12 reference and CuSn8Ni15 sample bushings. Since the oil flow and pressure were low, most of the oil escaped from the contact, resulting in metal-to-metal contact between pin and bushing, and yielding initial adhesive wear that quickly evolved into abrasive wear. Due to the relative high surface roughness and hardness of the pin, the system did not perform well as bearing. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the World Tribology Congress (Kyoto, Japan 9/6-11/209).
