An empirical method is presented for taking entrance effects into account in computing flow rates and load-carrying capacities of circular thrust bearings. Because of the limited data on which it is based, the method is applicable only to bearings having an 0.020-in. diameter supply hole but it can be generalized when data for other supply hole diameters are obtained. When applied to the geometry for which experimental data were available, the procedure yielded values of flow rate and load falling within approximately 10 per cent of the experimental values. Author
