heal.abstract In this paper, we propose an engineering approach for the elastohydrodynamic (EHD) analysis and optimization of the steady operation of intact, worn or/and misaligned journal bearings. We develop an iterative algorithm, based on finite element formulations for both the hydrodynamic lubrication and the elastic deformation of the bearing pad, which converges to the solution of the coupled problem. In addition, we formulate a multi-objective optimization problem, and seek combinations of the design variables, namely, length-to-diameter ratio, Sommerfeld number and bearing deformation coefficient, which minimize simultaneously the normalized friction coefficient and the normalized maximum pressure, under intact and representative fault conditions. Optimal solutions are identified based on the Pareto dominance, and are physically interpreted. The present development provides a tool for optimally reducing the parameter space of independent variables in EHD journal bearing design. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V. en
