Abstract: The performance of vertical herringbone grooved journal bearings has been experimentally conducted to investigate the effects of groove patterns on the pumping sealing of the bearings. A test rig has been designed and fabricated for this purpose, and different herringbone groove patterns on the shafts have been tested at rotational speeds of about 200-2100 rpm. The aluminium shafts are of 46.2 mm diameter and the transparent sleeve (to enable visual observation of liquid lubricant between the shafts and the sleeve) was made of a perspex pipe of 120 mm length. Pressure tappings were made on the sleeve to obtain the pressure profiles along the shafts. The asymmetrical S-L-S-L (short-long-short-long) pattern, with a groove length ratio of 4.5:5.5, and the symmetrical L-S-S-L (long-short-long-short) pattern, with a groove length ratio of 3:7, show the most promising performance among the herringbone groove patterns considered.
