Solutions are obtained for the pressure distributions in porous, flexible long bearings. The oil is assumed to have a viscosity which is either (a) constant or (b) varying with pressure according to the law η = η0 eαp . Finally, a method is given whereby the pressure distributions in porous, flexible bearings can be found approximately from the corresponding values for non-porous bearings. The limits of validity of the approximation are investigated.
