Bearing technology for innovative gearbox
Ultra-high bypass ratio engines decouple fan and turbine speeds, which reduces environmental harm. However, diverse technological issues are associated with their implementation related to rotational speed, harsh lubrication conditions and power density. The design of the rolling bearing can affect the gearbox and engine efficiency, performance and reliability. The EU-funded BrEATHE project will develop, design, model and try a rolling bearing that will be integrated into a high-power gearbox. The team will also investigate new high loaded materials, work to develop models that predict bearing conduct, and produce samples and try them in testbeds. BrEATHE will demonstrate a reduction in power loss and oil flow and an increase in rolling contact stress capacity.
