Lubrication analyses of cam and flat-faced follower

Hazim U. Jamali, Amjad Al-Hamood, Oday Ibraheem Abdullah, Adolfo Senatore & Josef Schlattmann
The principal factors that affect the characteristics of contact problem between cam and follower vary enormously during the operating cycle of this mechanism. This includes radius of curvature, surface velocities and applied load. It has been found over the last decades that the mechanism operates under an extremely thin film of lubricant. Any practical improvement in the level of film thickness that separates the contacted surfaces represents an essential step towards a satisfactory design of...
