The paper presents a comprehensive analysis of misaligned journal bearings. The equations are valid for finite bearings containing grooves at any angular position in which the misalignment can vary in magnitude as well as in direction with respect to the bearing’s boundaries. The relevant equations, the method of solution, and a set of results for the case of L/D = 1 are presented. Charts are offered for a number of additional cases which bring out some of the salient features of grooved bearing misalignment.
