      The influence of the labyrinth seals on the dynamic behaviour of a flexible rotor in journal bearings is investigated. In particular a code which makes possible the determination of the stiffness and damping coefficients ...
    • Neural Networks Based Study of Friction Coefficient Variation in Sliding Bearings 

      Senatore, Adolfo; Ruggiero, Alessandro; Palade, Vasile; Ciortan, Sorin (Universitatea "Dunărea de Jos" din Galaţi, 2007)
      The paper presents the possibility of using the neural networks approach for the analysis of friction coefficient evolution in case of sliding bearings. Several non-metallic bearing materials are investigated, both with ...
    • The Resulted Roughness at Turning of some Non-Metallic Materials and Correlation with Durability of Machine Cut Surfaces 

      Pascu, Ileana Cristina; Popescu, Iulian (Universitatea "Dunărea de Jos" din Galaţi, 2007)
      In this paper there are studied the results obtained at graphite and polyvinyl chloride turning. Such pieces are used like loose parts or in subassemblies. The final roughness of such pieces after processing and the influence ...
    • Flammability Tests on Hot Surfaces for Industrial Fluids 

      Deleanu, Lorena; Buzoianu, Dragoş; Rîpă, Minodora; Crăciunoiu, Ştefan; Drug, Adina (Universitatea "Dunărea de Jos" din Galaţi, 2007)
      Industrial fluids have to be evaluated not only for their performances as load capacity, durability, but also for their potential risk including ignition. Based on a solid documentation the authors point out the significance ...
    • The Level of Confidence for a Ship Hull Girder 

      Popoiu Păcuraru, Sandiţa; Matulea, Iordan (Universitatea "Dunărea de Jos" din Galaţi, 2007)
      Structural estimation consists in a set of activities done to certificate security and reliability of an existing ship for its residual service life. Depending on ship’s type and damages, there are alternatively evaluation ...
    • Damage Evolution of AL7175 and CK45 Alloys under Fretting Fatigue 

      Buciumeanu, Mihaela; Miranda, Antonio Sousa; Silva, Filipe Samuel (Universitatea "Dunărea de Jos" din Galaţi, 2007)
      There are several different parameters that affect the fretting fatigue behaviour of materials. The present work is focused on the influence of the wear damage evolution. Results of fretting fatigue experimental tests ...
    • Structured Surfaces used for Improving Tribological Behaviour for the Piston – Ring Cylinder – Liner Friction Couples in Internal Combustion Engines 

      Mihalcea, Gabriel Arin; Mihăescu, Leonard (Universitatea "Dunărea de Jos" din Galaţi, 2007)
      Structured surfaces means the achievement of a rate, or controlled micro-geometry for one or both friction surfaces. These surface profiles are used to guarantee lubrication functions of transport, hoarding and spread of ...
    • Influence of Grease Grade and Working Regime on the Structural Modifications of the Superficial Layers on Roller-Roller Tribosystems 

      Diaconu, Nicolae (Universitatea "Dunărea de Jos" din Galaţi, 2007)
      A X-ray diffractometric method is used for analysing the distributions of the 1-st and 2-nd tension state and dislocation density in the superficial layers, after tests in different working and lubricating conditions, the ...
