Prospects in Development of Journal Bearings

  • D. M. Smith


Many proposals have been made for the future development of journal bearings, affecting principles and details of design as well as materials and lubricants. The ever-widening range of analytical and experimental research has covered aspects of these proposals. Specialized requirements, such as those of nuclear plant and of space equipment, have led to the use of novel lubricants, including liquid metals and pressurized gases.
