A general method is derived for the solution of the Reynolds equation including the effects of tangential and normal velocities. It is applied to the solution of a full journal bearing under a fluctuating load with no journal rotation. The characteristics of a finite journal bearing under a cyclic sinusoidal load are shown in curve form.
