Abstract:

An investigation was made of the carrying capacity, rotating friction, and the journal motion in a fully-enclosed bearing. It is assumed the end losses of the lubricant are absent. The lubricant layer characteristics were obtained by integration of appropriate equations describing the pressure distribution in the lubricating layer at different eccentricities and with variations of the dimensionless parameters of the current conducting gas.
