dc.description.abstractRotor dynamic analysis of liquid ring seals depends upon the correct specification of seal dynamic stiffness and damping characteristics. These are in turn dependent upon several parameters, including the friction holding force between the sealing face and the mating retaining ring. Designers currently assume a value for effective friction coefficient in order to utilize methods for prediction of response and stability. This thesis presents the results of testing on twelve actual seal rings of varying configuration at pressures of 689, 1378, 2068, and 2757 kPa in a static seal test rig to experimentally determine values of effective friction coefficient. The results are presented in graphical form as average effective friction coefficient versus eccentricity ratio for forward and backward motion of the rings.en
