Optimum porous journal bearing ensuring maximum load capacity

  • V. I. Grabovskii


The problem of an infinite journal bearing having an isothermal compressible lubricant and a porous bush and ensuring the optimum load capacity is solved. The optimum clearance profiles and bush dimensions and position are found for various properties of the bush and lubricant supply conditions.
