Test Plans

  1. Run current setup with full sensing capability to collect pertinent data
    • Collected data will include vibrations, oil flow, housing displacement, and oil temperature.
  2. Remove current journal, replace with first fabricated journal, run same profile and obtain similar data.
    • Journal Shaft Change SOP currently in progress and on EDGE
  3. Remove second journal, replace with third, collect similar data.
  4. Remove bearing, replace with modified bearing.
  5. (Repeat steps 3, 4, and 5 until all data has been collected & logged.
  6. Utilize data overlays to see the effects of changing the clearance, maximizing displacements, etc. Provide an analytical comparison to see how well our data matches our current expectations.
