Magnetic fluids have been around since the 1940's. They come in dierent forms: Magnetorheological fluids (MR fluids) and Ferrofluids. MR fluids characterise themselves by having a large change in viscosity under the influence of a magnetic field. Ferrofluids have a significantly smaller change in viscosity however ferrfluids are colloidal...

This paper discusses a new type of hybrid journal bearing in which a magnetorheological fluid is used in combination with local magnetic fields, such that the hydrodynamic and hydrostatic working regimes are not compromised. This demonstrates the potential of using the concept of rheological texture in bearings. The performance of this new...

Magnetorheological fluids can be used as a smart lubricant as a result of the fact that its properties can be changed with the use of a magnetic field. Local flow resistance and local pressure can be generated by applying a local magnetic field. This work presents a hydrostatic bearing in which the pressure profile of a conventional...

Ferrofluid pocket bearings are interesting for fast and precise positioning systems thank to the absence of stick-slip, the low viscous friction and their cost-effective nature. However, the characteristics of the bearing change due to over(de)compression since air escapes out of the enclosed pocket. This article presents an experimentally...

A ferrofluid pocket bearings is a type of hydrostatic bearing that uses a ferrofluid seal to encapsulate a pocket of air to carry a load. Their properties, combining a high stiffness with low (viscous) friction and absence of stick-slip, make them interesting for applications that require fast and high precision positioning. Knowledge on the...

Ferrofluid bearings have been demonstrated to be very interesting for precision positioning systems. The friction of these bearings is free of stick-slip which results in an increase of precision. More knowledge on the friction behaviour of these bearings is important for there application in precision positioning systems. This paper...

Coil springs are a common element in compliant actuators. For closed-loop control, the force of the coil spring has to be measured. Typically, deflection sensors indirectly measure this force. Implicitly, this assumes that the coil spring is a pure stiffness, without any mass. In reality, internal oscillations can occur due to impacts or other...

Floating ring bearings are the commonly used type of bearing for automotive turbochargers. The automotive industry continuously investigates how to reduce the bearing friction losses and how to create silent turbochargers. Many of these studies involve creating a numerical model of the rotor-bearing system and performing validation on a test...

Journal bearings are used to support rotors in a wide range of applications. In order to ensure reliable operation, accurate analyses of these rotor-bearing systems are crucial. Coupled analysis of the rotor and the journal bearing is essential in the case that the rotor is flexible. The accuracy of prediction of the model at hand depends on its...

Reducing weight of off-shore wind turbine nacelles is currently a key driver of innovation within the wind turbine industry. Weight reduction will not only lead to smaller loads and thus smaller towers of the turbine, but also reduce logistic costs during the turbine’s installation. This holds even more so for off-shore turbines, the costs...

Accurate prediction of cavitation is an important feature in hydrodynamic bearing modeling. Especially for thermo-hydrodynamic modeling, it is crucial to use a mass-conservative cavitation algorithm. This paper introduces a new mass-conserving Reynolds cavitation algorithm, which provides fast convergence and easy implementation in finite...

The "classic" solution for the support of a translating lockgate, the wheelonrail support, has relatively high construction as well as inspection and maintenance costs. An alternative support which has previously been developed for use in the Prins WillemAlexander lock is the socalled "hydrosupport", a hydrostatic thrust bearing that slides on...
