Using high oil-flow rates, 6-in-bore tapered roller thrust bearings were operated in a speed range of 3600 fpm to 10800 fpm with loads up to 70,000 lb. Bearing operating temperature is considered to be the principal criterion of operation. The effect of lubricating systems, speed, load, oil-flow rates, lubricant viscosity, and oil-inlet temperature on the operating temperature is demonstrated. The test-rig results are generalized by means of dimensional analysis enabling the designer to predict operating temperature for various operating conditions of speed, load, oil-flow rates, and oil-inlet viscosity.
