Analysis of the multiphase lubricating oil effect on the performance of the tilting-pad journal bearing

The multiphase fluid dynamics is used to model the oil film in the tilting-pad journal bearing. Particles are added to the lubricating oil and the change of loading capacity of oil film is studied numerically. The performance of the bearing under high-speed and heavy load are elucidated. The results show that the bearing capacity depends upon concentration, diameter and density of particles.
