Paper Abstract

The supply of fresh lubricant into a journal bearing plays an important role in determining the overall bearing performance. Lacking of supply generates excessive heat and may introduce starvation in the bearing which degrades the bearing overall performance or even cause an unscheduled overhauling. On the other hand excessive supply will be costly over longer term. Understanding the flow pattern of mixing process of the carried-over lubricant and the fresh lubricant supplied through bearing grooves is thus required.
