  This study presents an analysis of journal bearing lubricated with couple stress fluids considering the effects of a layer adhered to bearing surface. The modified classical Reynold’s equation is derived considering the effects of surface layer and couple stress fluids. In the present study, the effects of couple stresses on the steady state journal bearing performance characteristics are analyzed based on Stokes micro-continuum theory. The Reynold’s boundary conditions are used in the analysis. Results of non-dimensional load capacity and coefficient of friction are presented.

  Appropriate modeling of maintenance downtime distribution requires sufficient and good quality data. However, in the absence of those conditions of data, an alternative method using expert opinion inputs is usually employed. Literature on the applications of expert opinion in modeling maintenance downtime is found fairly limited. This study aims to fill in that gap and suggest a practical way of incorporating expert opinion in the modeling. A case study of an offshore gas compression train system is presented here to describe the approach used in modeling of preventive maintenance downtime using expert opinion. Using right set of questionnaires and a fractile technique, downtime distributions are successfully elicited from expert. The comparison analysis shows that the downtime distribution derived from expert opinion is tighter than the one estimated solely based on raw plant maintenance data, indicating that the expert opinion approach is a good alternative for estimating the downtime measures of maintenance tasks.

  This study presents the result of an attempt to develop compressor and turbine maps for a 5.2 MW rated industrial gas turbine. The research is motivated by the need to study load accepting and load rejection characteristics of cooperating gas turbines. Only overall performance parameters of the gas turbine are provided by the manufacture and that made it difficult to carry out such studies. This work proposes the use of scaling method in the fixed geometry region and stage-stacking method in the variable geometry region. Generalized stage and overall component performance curves, all from literature, are used in presenting the performance maps. Characteristics of compressors whose actual maps are known are first used to choose a reference map. Relying on the selected map, predicted performance curves are obtained for the aforesaid gas turbine. The variable geometry is demonstrated considering actual data from literature. Having the design point parameters from limited overall performance data, the proposed approach has managed to get the key performance maps. The results can be used for stability, performance optimization and condition monitoring studies.

  The present study evaluates the effects of two-layered long porous journal bearing configuration on improvement in load capacity and reduction in coefficient of friction. The Brinkman model is utilized to model the flow in the porous region. A modified form of Reynolds equation is derived considering two-layered porous region adjacent to the bearing surface. The non-dimensional pressure and shear stress expressions are obtained using the Reynolds boundary conditions. Results of non-dimensional load capacity and coefficient of friction are presented as a function of permeability and thickness of porous layers. Based on the results presented in the study, a low permeability porous layer that adheres to high permeability porous layer on bearing surface could significantly enhance load capacity and reduce coefficient of friction.
