The complete film solution for the squeeze film in an infinitely long journal bearing contains an arbitrary constant. When only positive pressure regions are retained, this constant influences the load capacity. Several different values have been used for this constant. Its value is determined here so that the infinitely long journal bearing is the limiting case of the finite journal bearing.
