The paper presents an adiabatic analysis of misaligned journal bearings. The misalignment is allowed to vary in magnitude as well as in direction with respect to the bearing boundaries. Results are obtained for the case of a fixed journal axis with a bearing length to diameter ratio of unity. It is concluded that thermal effects are more pronounced for misaligned journal bearings
