- The analysis and the accompanying FORTRAN code, SEALPAL1, to simulate liquid annular seals with axial taper, Moody friction factors, and pre-swirl, are discussed. The output of the code includes all dynamic coefficients (stiffness, dampings, and inertias), leakage rate, torque, and horsepower loss. The computer code results were compared with five cases from the literature. The agreement was very good in almost all instances, except several predicted cross coupled stiffnesses were significantly lower than those appearing in the literature. This disagreement could reflect a theoretical or a programming error by the researcher or in the literature, or it could be a result of the difference in friction factor models or other assumptions employed.
