Abstract

This paper outlines the design and development of a test rig used to determine the dynamic characteristics of oil film journal bearings. Some background is given on the main design, operating parameters, and instrumentation systems. Recent developments include the ability to test at higher speeds using a specially designed drive motor and new test and analysis techniques. Newly commissioned software and detailed design improvements have also been incorporated to enable the rig to be used on a continuing basis for a range of bearing types and sizes. Some typical output plots are given for a 5 pad pivoted shoe bearing. A tribute is given to the late Keith Brockwell, a respected colleague and fellow researcher in the field.
