An efficient, resource-saving equation system of the MEHD algorithm.

The MEHD algorithm considers the elastic deformation of the bearing shell additionally to the dynamics of the oil film. Deformations are represented by a superposition of appropriate mode shapes (modal approach), which reduces the number of degrees of freedom and therefore the computation time considerably.

Additionally MEHD model outputs:

  • Modal coordinates of the flexible bearing shell
  • Animated lubrication gap height distribution
  • Animated pressure distribution
