What is it about?

A new model for circular staved water-lubricated bearings was developed and a structural optimization method was proposed in this paper. Based on the proposed method, the optimal stave structures were determined under some specific working conditions.

Why is it important?

In this paper, a structural optimization method of staved water-lubricated bearings was proposed for the first time, the optimized bearings present better performance.


I hope the structural optimization method proposed in this paper can help the bearing designers.
