Reynolds equation for the pressure in a full finite journal bearing which is nonhomogeneous has been reduced to a homogeneous equation. By separating the variables the problem is reduced to an eigenvalue problem. The orthogonal functions expansion method is used to determine the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions. First four eigenvalues are calculated. Design charts are prepared for the eccentricity ratios of 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 and length to diameter ratios of 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0.
