Measuring the performance of a novel fluid film bearing supporting a rotor on a stationary shaft, by non-contacting means

Article English OPEN
Martin, J. K.;

A description is given of a multi-body dynamics rig for testing a novel rotor fluid film bearing system. The design included a composite rotor supported on a stationary central shaft, with loading applied by non-contacting electromagnets. The shaft included hydrostatic ... View more
