It is shown that the hydrodynamic phenomena occurring in the channel between blocks of a friction thrust bearing are approximately analyzed, providing a basis for clarification of the heat calculations and conditions providing for absence of vacuum zones. The problem of vortex formation in the channel is analyzed considering the influence of lubrication carried from beneath one block to beneath the other. Convolutions of the flow with turbulent motion are considered.
