Abstract

A SIMPLIFIED method of analysis for the rate of oil flow in plain journal bearings has been developed by S. A. McKee, head of the National Bureau of Standards (U.S.A.) engines and lubrication laboratory. This problem is important to bearing design and operation ; an adequate oil flow is essential to insure not only the maintenance of a load‐carrying oil film, but also the disposal of frictional heat developed in the bearing.
