The paper describes a study of the operation of a wide inlet textured bearing pad, pivoted at the load centre. Scatter in experimental results recently obtained might be interpreted to indicate the existence two modes of operation. This possibility of this phenomenon occurring is established theoretically. Further, the findings are discussed in relation to the results of the experimental scatter. The latter appears to support the theory.
