Abstract

Flash temperature has a profound influence on the tribological behavior of contact surfaces. An asperity flash temperature model is developed for journal bearings with a thin soft coating. The asperity flash temperature of tin coated 339 Al-Si alloy bearings in contact with case hardened steel journals is analyzed. Factors influencing the flash temperature are discussed. Correlations of the flash temperature with asperity roughness parameters, such as the RMS roughness and skewness values, are explored. It was found that the maximum rise in temperature increased as the roughness and skewness increased.
