Hydrodynamics of a slider cylinder on a parallel track: mobility method of solution
The system studied here consists of a non-rotating cylinder sliding inside a fully lubricated parallel track with a prescribed longitudinal velocity, carrying a transverse load (normal to the track). Reynolds equations are used for the particular case of a non-rotating sliding cylinder in a fully lubricated track. Two short-bearing mobility charts are developed for a normalized clearance track (equivalent to those developed by Booker for journal-bearings). Pressure distributions around the cylinder and motion paths within the clearance track are produced for prescribed transverse loading and longitudinal speed requirements for hydrodynamic analysis purposes. Numerical application examples are presented for general and specific cases at the end.
