Calculated steady-state and dynamic characteristics are given for the four-pad, tilting-pad journal bearing with preload coefficients of 0 and 0.5 and for mean Reynolds up to 12,000. The calculated characteristics are compared with experimental measurements over the same range of operating parameters. Correlation is good, leading to the conclusion that the calculated data are effective for design analysis of rotor-bearing systems using tilting-pad bearings.
