    Abstract: In response to the importance of the industry great need to the hydrostatic thrust spherical bearing, this study is performed. The stochastic modified Reynolds equation (developed by the author in his previous papers) applied to this type of bearings has become more developed to deal with the bearing static performance under the effect of the fluid...

    Abstract: In this study, among plant equipment, valve and piping fitting which is vulnerable to waterhammer was selected for diagnosis. Impulsive vibration by waterhammer was measured and applied to HIL simulator as operation data using HILS method for reproducing failure mode and life prediction of them. For effective measuring vibration, accelerometer was ... Show More
