Oil and Bearings a.k.a. Hydrodynamic Bearings - FWIW

A good read for anybody interested...

Hydrodynamic Bearings

Journal bearing design is complex. It involves optimizing clearances, bearing length, minimum film lubricant, viscosity, flow rate, and inlet slots. Design equations are available, but their solution is time consuming unless done on a computer. Fortunately, these equations have been reduced to chart form, and a wide variety of design problems can be solved with various charts in the literature.
