Tribo-X inside ANSYS

 

With the integration of the Tribo-X journal bearing module into ANSYS Workbench, in cooperation with CADFEM, the Tribo-X inside ANSYS extension has been developed, which allows the convenient calculation of lubricated journal bearings with ANSYS Mechanical. The basis of the bearing analysis is a CAD bearing model, in which the gap area is automatically detected. The description of the geometry and load of the bearing is parametric in the Workbench project tree. The parameterization enables automated sensitivity and optimization analyses of the bearing. These analyses can be supported by ANSYS DesignXplorer or ANSYS optiSLang.

 

Tribo-X inside ANSYS

 

Highlights:

  • short calculation times despite high degree of detailing
  • basis of the bearing analysis is a CAD model with arbitrary gap geometry
  • consideration of elastic deformations of the bearing and their effect on the gap geometry
  • complete simulation of the Stribeck curve by considering mixed friction
  • identification of speed- and load-dependent bearing coefficients
  • fully parametric workflow

Simulation of Hydrodynamic Journal Bearings with Tribo-X inside ANSYS

Date: 20.08.2019
Time: 10:00 – 11:00
Language: German

The structural behaviour of shafts with journal bearings depends to a high degree on the dynamic characteristics of the lubricant film in the bearings. An established method for the simulation of the lubricant film formation is elastohydrodynamics (EHD). With Tribo-X inside ANSYS journal bearings can be analysed quickly…

Simulation of Hydrodynamic Journal Bearings with Tribo-X inside ANSYS

Date: 19.09.2019
Time: 09:00 – 17:00
Location: Grafing
Language: German

With Tribo-X inside ANSYS, CADFEM and Tribo Technologies have jointly developed a solution that allows the calculation of hydrodynamic journal bearings comfortably and time-efficiently within ANSYS Workbench. The calculation is based on an extended form of the Reynolds differential equation, which has been established…
