Abstract

The article is devoted to modeling of the molecular microscopic journal bearing. The walls and the lubricant of the bearing are fullerene-like molecules. On the basis of similarity theory and analysis of the dimensions, the similarity criterion is proposed. This criterion characterizes the convergence of a numerical solution. The test calculation is also made to evaluate the quality of the proposed criterion.
Keywords: journal bearing; fullerene; molecular dynamics; hydrodynamic lubrication theory; the theory of similarity; dimensional analysis; convergence criterion journal bearing; fullerene; molecular dynamics; hydrodynamic lubrication theory; the theory of similarity; dimensional analysis; convergence criterion
