Hydrodynamic Bearings

  1. Sep 29, 2004 #1
    Is there a way to relate the viscosity of a liquid to the fatigue wear of a bearing. The bearings are lubricated with the flow of liquid through the metering devise. The flow of liquid creates a perpendicular force on a shaft with carbon bearings on each end. Is there a formula that I can use that will incorporate the pressure difference in the flow of liquid and the viscosity of the liquid to help me figure out the wear on the carbon bearings
