The torque due to the lubricant, and acting on a journal in a short cylindrical bearing, is derived in the special, and particularly simple, case of a journal whirling and rocking in the neighborhood of its steady-state position under load. The results of the investigation have a bearing in the study of the damping of forced vibrations and of the development of self-excited oscillations of rotors.
