Abstract

Bubbles will be produced in the lubricant film of hydrostatic bearings caused by the hydrodynamically generated negative pressure. The production of bubbles should be avoided because bubbles in lubricant films have undesirable effects on bearing performances. The limit of bubbles production in the sector shaped recesses of hydrostatic thrust bearings is experimentally and theoretically investigated. Effects of the spindle tilt on bubbles production in recesses are also analysed. (from English abstract)
