A Ferrofluid Lubrication of A Rough, Porous Inclined Slider Bearing With Slip Velocity

N.D. Patel, G. Deheri


An endeavor has been made to investigate the performance of a ferrofluid lubricated rough porous inclined slider bearing considering slip velocity. Jenkins model for the flow of magnetic fluid has been adopted. It is observed that although magnetization introduces a positive effect on the performance, the bearing suffers owing to transverse surface roughness. The performance of the bearing system can be made to improve by suitably choosing the magnetization parameter and slip coefficient in the case of negatively skewed roughness, which becomes more sharp with the occurrence of variance (-ve).
