Discussion: "An Analysis of Stress Relaxation in Elastico-Viscous Fluid Lubrication of Journal Bearings" (Harnoy, A., 1978, ASME J. Lubr. Technol., 100, pp. 287–294)
Journal of Lubrication Technology
The behavior of journal bearings lubricated by non-Newtonian fluids is a complex subject. In this paper the author's basic premise is that a non-Newtonian lubricant exhibits superior performance as compared to an equivalent Newtonian lubricant in steadily loaded journal bearings. I question if this is true. Polymer-containing oils may provide certain performance advantages in the areas of engine cold starting and oil consumption. However, data supporting improved load earring capacity for thesedoi:10.1115/1.3453168 fatcat:2ggku7gbdnfd3aznpspnv54yaa
