On the basis of a Brinkman model (BM), this paper predicts that the effects of viscous shear stresses on the linear stability of short porous journal bearings are apparent and not negligible. Compared with those of the slip-flow model (SFM) and the Darcy model (DM), the viscous shear effects provide a significant increase in the stability threshold speeds of short porous journal bearings.
