NEURINGER-ROSEINWEIG MODEL BASED LONGITUDINALLY ROUGH POROUS CIRCULAR STEPPED PLATES IN THE EXISTENCE OF COUPLE STRESS
Keywords:Load bearing capacity, ferrofluid, longitudinal roughness, circular stepped plates
AbstractThis study intents to scrutinize the impact of ferrofluid in the presence of couple stress for longitudinally rough porous circular stepped plates. The influence of longitudinal surface roughness is developed using the stochastic model of Christensen and Tonder for nonzero mean, variance and skewness. Neuringer-Roseinweig model is adopted for the influence of ferrofluid. The couple stress effect is characterized by Stoke’s micro continuum theory. The modified Reynolds’ type equation is stochastically averaged and solved by no-slip boundary conditions. The closed form solutions for load bearing capacity and film pressure are obtained as a function of different parameters and plotted graphically. It is perceived that the load capacity gets elevated owing to the combined influence of magnetization and couple stress when the proper choice of roughness parameters (negatively skewed, standard deviation) is in place. Porosity and roughness (positively skewed) adversely affect bearing’s performance. The graphical and tabular analysis shows that there is a significant growth in load bearing capacity compared to the conventional lubricant case.
