Data for: Improved design process of dry-running radial plastic plain bearings by coupling laboratory tests and component simulation
In order to support the design process of dry sliding polymeric journal bearings, a novel hardware-in-the-loop process has been developed: M. Fickert, A. Gebhard, Improved design process of dry-running radial plastic plain bearings by coupling laboratory tests and component simulation, 61. Tribologie-Fachtagung, 23rd International Colloquium Tribology, 2022, Stuttgart/Ostfildern A specific sub-step in this process is the validation of a chosen set of bearing and shaft dimensions with respect to operational clearance and the prevention of jamming due to thermal expansion. The data represents the exemplary hardware-in-the-loop test of the above conference paper. Columns A-N represent data measured on the Block-on-Ring tribometer that was utilized for the test and columns O-S represent data that was calculated according to the described procedure. Names of physical quantities and their units are included in the form of two header lines.
Steps to reproduce
Data can be reproduced by Hardware-in-the-loop test as described in the mentioned conference paper. However, for tribological test data it is well known that reproducibility is low, even over time within the same laboratory, but even more so between different labs and across different tribometers and operators (see 10.1016/j.matchar.2006.12.008 e.g.).
