Hydrodynamic Lubrication of Non-Newtonian Fluids covers basic theory, lubrication failure and numerical methods and procedures. The title offers a feasible method for solving the hydrodynamic lubrication problem for non-Newtonian fluids. Whereas hydrodynamic lubrication in Newtonian fluids can be solved using the existing Reynolds equation, hydrodynamic lubrication in non-Newtonian fluid is much more difficult to solve because the non-Newtonian constitutive equation is nonlinear. Engineers and technicians working on non-Newtonian fluid lubrication calculation and analysis will find this to be an invaluable reference on the latest thinking on hydrodynamic lubrication.
This book presents a unified solution to hydrodynamic lubrication in non-Newtonian fluids, proposing a flow separation method. In addition, the title gives methods and insights into viscosity in non-Newtonian fluids, the lubrication failure mechanism and fluid lubrication mechanism carrying capacity.
