Abstract:

A theoretial analysis is presented of the steady state load carrying capacity, attitude angle and fluid film stiffness of plain cylindrical journal beaings operating in the turbulent regime. The calculated data on fluid film stiffnesses are included in this report so that they can be use to calculate system critical speeds. In the analysis presented here, side leakage is neglected, however. Existing published data on a 360 degree plain circular bearing was used to establish a correlation factor between laminar and turbulent leakage factors. Author
