Bearings and Seals

  • Ralph A. Burton


This chapter describes journal bearings and face seals, and introduces terminology that is used throughout this book. It explains the idea of relative curvature along with other assumptions that are implicit in the analysis of lubricant films. Important modes of thermal deformation are identified, and the implications of thermal failure mechanisms are discussed relative to each geometric configuration.
