The differential equation for the pressure distribution around a spiral-grooved journal bearing with compressible lubricant is solved by the numerical method of matrix influence coefficients for the case of arbitrary eccentricity and misalignment. Performance characteristics are presented for one particular bearing over the range 0 Lambda 20. Results are presented showing the restoring moment due to misalignment, the effect of LD ratio at large eccentricity and the influence of eccentricity ratio on the optimum values of groove parameters for maximum radial stiffness. Comparison is made with experimental results. Author
