Hematite Suspension based Absorbent Pad Inclined Slider Influenced by Slip and Squeeze Velocity with Altering Film Ratio
The effects of various entities like slip and squeeze velocities, inlet-outlet film ratio, and the material parameter have been fairly explored in a hematite suspension based absorbent (porous) pad inclined slider. Mathematical expressions for pressure, load capacity (lifting force), friction, friction coefficient, and position of centre of pressure (COP) in terms of the above physical parameters have been acquired. Jenkins model has been employed as a mathematical set of governing equations. It has been found that an increase in the squeeze velocity has enhanced the load capacity and diminished the friction coefficient whereas the escalating values of slip velocity and material properties have reversed the trends. Besides, the optimum value of the inlet-outlet film ratio for maximum load capacity has reduced with a rise in the squeeze velocity. Improvement in material parameters shifted the position of COP slightly towards the inlet while an enhancement in the squeeze velocity and film ratio shifted the same slightly towards the outlet. The results acquired in the present paper will be helpful in designing and modifying the various types of fluid dynamic slider bearings.
