Tilting pad journal bearings (TPJB) are fundamental components in rotating machinery for their known stable behavior at high rotational speeds. Their steady and dynamic characteristics have been investigated extensively by several researchers. Devoted test rigs have been realized to validate the predictions of theoretical models. Nonetheless, due to the complexity of TPJB, there are still issues that need to be clarified in order to improve predictability of their behavior at the design step.
I am happy to announce this Special Issue entitled "Tilting Pad Journal Bearings: state of the art". The main focus of this Special Issue is work related to TPJB and TPJB-rotor systems, highlighting not only improved performance, but also deeper insights into the phenomena that govern these components and the influence of design, operation, materials, manufacturing parameters. Some keywords are provided but they are by no means exhaustive. If you are interested, please submit the abstract before 31 May 2021.Prof. Dr. Paola Forte
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
