A numerical investigation of the two dimensional flow in cavitated wave journal bearings is presented in this paper. An algorithm based on an upwind differencing scheme combined with a Rosenbrock integrator was used to simulate bearing cavitation. The algorithm, which conserves mass throughout the bearing, automatically implements JFO boundary conditions at rupture and at reformation. The numerical predictions are compared with numerical results obtained with other algorithms.
