A comparison of analytical methods for estimating temperatures in simple sliding contacts

A comparison of analytical methods for estimating temperatures in simple sliding contacts

Polymer materials are gaining popularity in slide bearing applications due to their low mass and beneficial self-lubrication and damping properties. At the same time, the trend toward compact design causes increased specific loads. Especially the high temperatures that go along with high rotational speeds have a strong impact on the choice of materials. Thus, it is required to gain knowledge about the temperatures in polymer-metal-contacts to facilitate the design of such tribological systems. This work describes different analytical approaches to the thermal modelling of unlubricated tribological systems. A comparison to experimental results is used to evaluate the predictive accuracy of the analytical models.
