Abstract

It is common in the analysis of fluid film bearings to neglect the effect of convective fluid inertia. There has been some interest in recent years as to the validity of this assumption in high Reynolds number turbulent flows. Analytical techniques appropriate to the solution of finite width bearing problems considering fluid inertia have been proposed by others. The authors have applied one such method to the plane inclined slider thrust bearing and found that for some situations inertial effects may be important.
