Title: Analysis of the dynamics of a slider-crank mechanism with hydrodynamic lubrication in the connecting rod-slider joint clearance
Author: Daniel, GB

Abstract: The conventional slider-connecting rod-crank mechanism is widely applied in mechanical systems. The use of hydrodynamic bearings in the mechanism joints is of particular interest in reducing friction, mainly in special conditions of lubrication such as the connecting rod-slider joint. This bearing belongs to a class of bearings with alternating rotational motion. This paper proposes a mathematical model for this particular problem, considering the dynamics of the slider-connecting rod-crank system interacting with the lubrication phenomenon in bearings with alternating motion. Two models were used to analyze the dynamics of the system. The first model (by Eksergian Equation of Motion) represents the system when the connecting rod end is in contact with the bearing surface, assuming, in this condition, the same behavior as that of rigid bearings (without clearance). The second model (by Lagrange Method) represents the system when the connecting rod end is in the hydrodynamic lubrication mode in the slider bore clearance. In this condition, the slider moves in relation to the connecting rod, presenting a problem of multi-degrees-of-freedom. The mathematic model of hydrodynamic lubrication was introduced to obtain more realistic results of the system's dynamic behavior. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
