This study aims to present a novel hydrostatic squeeze film-metal mesh journal bearing (HS-MMJB), which uses both hydrostatic squeeze film damper (HSFD) and metal mesh damper (MMD), to suppress the vibration of rotor-bearing systems.
The lubrication equations were introduced to calculate the dynamic characteristics of HS-MMJB, and the response analyses of rotor systems were carried out. Experiments were conducted to study the vibration reduction of a rotor system with HS-MMJB. In addition, experiments for different oil supply pressures in the HS-MMJB were conducted.
The theoretical and experimental results show that the HS-MMJB exhibits excellent damping and vibration attenuation characteristics. Moreover, the stability of the rotor system can be improved by controlling the oil supply pressure.
There is a dearth of research on vibration characteristics of rotor system support by journal bearing combining HSFD and MMD. Moreover, the active oil pressure control is implemented to improve the stability of rotor system.
