Title (EN) HYDRODYNAMIC BEARINGS HAVING A CONTINUOUS BEAM MOUNTED SUPPORT SURFACE
(FR) PALIERS HYDRODYNAMIQUES AYANT UNE SURFACE D'APPUI CONTINUE MONTEE SUR SUPPORT
Abstract:
(EN) A hydrodynamic thrust, journal or combined radial and thrust bearing and methods of manufacturing the same. The bearing includes a continuous bearing surface (8) and support structure which supports the surface such that the surface may change shape and move in any direction (six degrees of freedom) to optimize formation of a converging wedge for hydrodynamic operation, equalization of load across the bearing surface in thrust bearings and to adjust for any shaft misalignment. The support structure can include a repeating series of support structure portions (30) each including a fully rigid portion (10) a partially rigid portion and connecting portions (30) connecting the spaced portions.
(FR) Palier de butée, palier de tourillon ou palier de butée radial combiné hydrodynamiques et procédés de fabricatrion de cet élément. Le palier comprend une surface d'appui continue (8) et une structure de support qui supporte la surface de telle sorte que la surface peut changer de forme et se déplacer dans n'importe quel sens (six degrés de liberté) pour optimiser la formation d'un coin convergent permettant le fonctionnement hydrodynamique, l'équilibrage de la charge sur toute la surface de support dans les paliers de butée et l'ajustement en fonction de n'importe quel défaut d'alignement de l'arbre. La structure de support peut comporter une série à répétition de parties de structure de support (30) qui comprennent chacune une partie entièrement rigide (10), une partie partiellement rigide et des parties de connexion (30) qui servent à relier les parties espacées.
