An “unevenly distributed supercharging” pattern is suggested for treating externally pressurized bearings. The scheme simplifies the problem and is applicable in calculating any type of externally pressurized bearings Results of numerical integration of Reynolds’ equation for a section spherical bearing using this treatment are given.
