Abstract

In a complete (360°) journal bearing, it is difficult to predict the extent of the oil film, particularly when estimating the friction loss. An experimental technique has been developed for photographing the film extent in glass bearings operating under reasonably practical conditions. Photographs are given showing the oil film extent in complete bearings of different forms under various operating conditions, and the results are discussed qualitatively.
