The purpose of this study on the turbulent lubricant film is: 1 To give a brief outline of a new theory called bulk-flow theory; 2 To investigate to what extent results of theories based on law of wall and mixing length concept agree with the newly developed theory; 3 To provide a theoretical basis for the design of bearings lubricated by fluids of low kinematic viscosity.
