A new hydrostatic spherical hinge is developed in this paper to provide a large load capacity. The static and dynamic Reynolds equations in spherical coordinate system for incompressible Newtonian fluid were established using the perturbation method. Finite difference method was employed to solve the load capacity, power loss, oil flow rate, dynamic stiffness, and damping coefficients. This paper provides a new perspective for analysis on the dynamic characteristics of the spherical hinge.
