The separation boundary condition is considered to be comparatively exact in the physical consideration of the supposition. The calculated performance characteristics applied to infinite width journal bearings are related to experimental results to some extent. However, performance characteristics applied to finite width journal bearings, which might be able to explain the experimental results more precisely, have been unknown. The present paper describes the application of the separation boundary condition to finite width journal bearings, and calculation results of some performance characteristics. The results are related to well-known experimental results in several respects.
