An analysis was made of the oil flows occurring in a full journal bearing with a continuous oil film. The flow rate into the bearing was determined at the section of greatest clearance and the rate of outflow was determined at the section of least clearance. The rate of side flow or leakage rate was determined by considering the flow across the boundary of the positive pressure area only and is the flow resulting from the hydrodynamic pressure gradients. It does not include the effects of any specific oil feed mechanism.
