Elasto Hydrodynamic Behavior .
Elasto Hydrodynamic Behavior for Science Lab Equipment Laboratory Instruments Manufacturers, Engineering Lab Equipments Manufacturers
Elasto Hydrodynamic lubrication occurs in roller bearings, gear wheels and cam followers, whose contact surfaces are subjected to high loads. These surfaces are elastically deformed because of high contact pressures. The theory of elasto-hydrodynamics (EHD theory) takes into consideration the elastic deformation of the bodies in contact with each other and provides a basis for calculating the influence of lubrication on damage to gears and roller bearings.
