This technical note presents an approximate solution for the fluid film forces and design coefficents for statically loaded cylindrical journal bearings. The solution is an improved correction to the infinitely long journal bearing model. The formulas derived are of extreme simplicity and the results are excellent for most practical journal bearing configurations.
