Fluid Film Bearings Technical Committee

73rd STLE Annual Meeting & Exhibition, May 20-24, 2018
Minneapolis Convention Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota (USA)

Dear Colleagues,

The Fluid Film Bearings Technical Committee is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 73rd STLE Annual Meeting & Exhibition that will be held on May 20-24, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Theoretical and experimental studies dealing with various aspects of liquid and gas fluid-film bearings (hydrodynamic, hydrostatic and hybrid) will be considered for presentations.

For the Fluid Film Bearings Sessions, presentation topics include (but are not limited to):

·      reactive (passive) and controllable (active and semi-active) bearing designs (plain geometry and tilting pad bearings, foil bearings, new designs etc.);

·      lubrication with non-Newtonian fluids, water, contaminated fluids (liquid/solid), refrigerants (two phase lubricants) and non-ideal gas mixtures;

·      lubrication models with reviewed turbulence concepts, inertia and shock effects;

·      transient, steady-state and linear/non-linear dynamic performance of bearings (incl. cold starting at high loads, dynamics of ultra-high speed bearings, self-induced and forced vibrations of machinery, resonance);

An additional joint session will be conducted between the Fluid Film Bearings and Surface Engineering Sections. Please apply to this joint session (“Fluid Film Bearings with Engineered Surfaces”) if your presentation is on or related to the following topics:

·       influence of chemical, thermal and mechanical material properties on bearing behavior and overall machinery performance (bearings with coatings, engineered surfaces and/or thick/thin liners; bearings with constant/linear/non-linear material properties);

·       textures or new coatings to create wall slip on fluid film bearing surfaces

·       new coating materials to increase wear resistance of fluid film bearings

Please mark your calendar and submit your 100-150 word abstract electronically no later than:

October 1st, 2017

Information on the topic areas to be covered at the 2018 Annual Meeting can be found on The processes and topic areas can be found under “Call for Papers”. Please check the Session that says “Fluid Film Bearings” or for the joint session, “Fluid Film Bearings with Engineered Surfaces.”

With warm regards,
