Misaligned shaft affects the bearings characteristics and significantly diminishes the range of safe bearing operation and it generates the mixed friction and transient conditions of unstable operation. Misalignment of journal bearing can be caused by position errors too. Journal bearings with. hyperboloidal profile extend the bearing operation range without the stress concentration on the edges of bush and the load can be carried without application of self-aligning bearings.
