For dynamically loaded journal bearings the classic analysis problem is prediction of the motion of a journal center under arbitrary loading. In most cases its speed and simplicity makes the mobility method seem the logical solution procedure. This paper reviews the method and details its numerical application, including particular examples for reciprocating machinery.
