Problem 8.14 [3] Given: Hydrostatic bearing Find: Required pad width; Pressure gradient; Gap height Solution: For a laminar flow (we will verify this assumption later), the pressure gradient is constant px () p i 1 2x W = where p i = 700 kPa is the inlet pressure (gage) Hence the total force in the y direction due to pressure is Fb x p d = where b is the pad width into the paper W 2 W 2 x p i 1 W d = Fp i bW 2 = This must be equal to the applied load F. Hence W 2 p i F b = W2 m 2 700 10 3 × N × 50000 N m × = W 0.143m = The pressure gradient is then dp dx Δ p W 2 = 2 Δ p W = 2 700 10 3 × N m 2 × 1 0.143 m × = 9.79 MPa m = The flow rate is given Q l h 3 12 μ dp dx = (Eq. 8.6c) Hence, for h we have h 12 μ Q l dp dx
