Effect of Power Law Model on Cylindrical Surface Texture on theIsothermal Performance of Parallel Plates

Author(s): Pankaj Kasib

The present study investigates the effect of cylindrical surface texturing obeying power law model on finite parallel plates. The modified Reynolds equation is solved numerically through finite difference approach with central differencing scheme. It has been observed that the combined effect of non Newtonian rheology and cylindri-cal surface textured improve the performance of parallel plates according to the operating parameters i.e. speed, load and dimple depth.
