By discretizing time and numerically integrating the equations of motion either for the linearized or the nonlinear journal bearing system, the locus of journal center can be predicted in the wake of a disturbance which upsets the equilibrium. From this locus, not only the stability of the system can be readily checked but also a greater insight into the dynamic characteristics of the rotor bearing systems can be obtained. Systems of solid bearings and porous bearings with journal bearing axes parallel as well as skewed have been studied.
