The results of extensive amount of thermohydrodynamic simulations are presented in the form of design charts for journal bearings. These charts enable one to evaluate the maximum temperature and an effective hearing temperature. Numerous examples are presented that show the applicability of these charts in predicting bearing performance parameters.
