Abstract

This paper describes two discontinuity effects that can occur when modelling radial tilting pad bearings subjected to high dynamic loads. The first effect to be treated is a pressure build-up discontinuity effect. The second effect is a contact-related discontinuity that disappears when a contact force is included in the theoretical model. Methods for avoiding the pressure build-up discontinuity effect are proposed.
