Abstract [en]

Soap lumps entering a grease-lubricated elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) contact were traced as they passed through the contact by using optical interferometry in a standard Ball & Disc apparatus and a high-speed video camera with light enhancer. One specific soap lump could be traced when it was passing through the contact and sharp images of the passing lump could be captured. This paper presents a combined experimental and numerical approach to determine what is happening when such lumps pass through the contact. From the fringe pattern, obtained by optical interferometry, a film thickness map is created by using image processing. This is done for every time step (1 ms) as the lump is passing through the contact. These maps serve as input to a numerical computation of the pressure by assuming elastic deformation theory. Consequently, no assumptions about the rheological behaviour of the grease have to be made. Two greases were studied, based on the same synthetic poly-α-olefin but thickened with Li-12-OH and Li-complex respectively. It is seen that the soap thickened lumps can cause deep elastic indentations accompanied by large pressure fluctuations. The pressure level will in some cases be more than doubled due to lumps entering the contact region. The effects on noise level and operational life are also discussed.
