To improve calculation of the oil supply to the main and conrod bearings in the combustion engine, it is possible to simulate plain bearings on a coupled elasto-hydrodynamic basis while allowing for partial-fill states. In an effort to advance the extended simulation technique, software has been developed by the Institute for Machine Components and Design (IMK) at the University of Kassel and validated in experiments. This paper describes the simulation software that has been developed, including the resultant findings on the lubricating oil requirement.
