In this approximate analysis of laminar journal bearing operations both the momentum and the energy equations are two dimensional, the shaft operates at a constant temperature and the bearing conducts heat in the radial direction only. Via the last of these assumptions, the equation of heat conduction is eliminated from consideration. The remaining equations are solved by a numerical iteration method. A parametric study of therohydrodynamic journal bearing operations is performed and design charts are given for a 100 deg arc bearing.
