Experimental results of the research on a tilting pad thrust bearing with symmetrical pad support in the conditions of high loads and low speeds are presented in the paper. As described in the literature review, experimental results of tilting pad bearings at low speed/high load regime and transient conditions are rare. Unusual material selection - steel pad against a DLC-type coating on the collar was utilized. Such material combination has been mostly used in automotive industry in concentrated contact friction pairs, but it is not commonly used in thick film contacts. The tests included low speed high load and a test, where a Stribeck curve was reproduced. Th...
