This paper aims to use the method of curve splicing to combine the slip zone and the no-slip zone to further improve the lubrication performance of the liquid film. The combination of the slip zone and the no-slip zone of an existing heterogeneous surface is still a single line stitching method so that a very large residual space at the surface of the friction pairs remains present, necessitating further improvement of the joining scheme between the slip zone and the no-slip zone in heterogeneous surfaces.
A set of discrete sinusoids is used as the splicing track for both the slip zone and the no-slip zone, the starting point and amplitude of the curve are introduced as the simulation variables and the effects of these variables on the bearing capacity and friction coefficient of the liquid film are comprehensively analyzed.
The results show that the method of selecting the sinusoidal curve as the slip zone and the no-slip zone trajectory, which is based on the existing method of linear stitching, can further enhance the bearing capacity and reduce the friction coefficient of the liquid film.
This method can further enhance the bearing capacity and reduce the friction coefficient of the liquid film.
