Different Materials in the Journal and Bearing

  • Ralph A. Burton

Abstract

Requirements other than thermoelastic stability may dictate the materials of a journal and bearing. This choice can greatly modify the conditions for quasi-static and dynamic seizure. Partitioning of heat, expansion, and especially the resistance to external cooling all play significant roles in quasi-static seizure. On the other hand, external cooling is of marginal importance in the dynamic seizure mechanism.
