The present paper deals with the performance analysis of a nonrecessed hole-entry hydrostatic/hybrid conical journal bearing with capillary restrictors. Finite element method has been used for solving the modified Reynolds equation governing the flow of lubricant in the clearance space of journal and bearing. The hole-entry hybrid conical journal bearing performance characteristics have been depicted for a wide range of radial load parameter (W¯r  = 0.25–1.5) with uniform distribution of holes at an angle of 30 deg in the circumferential direction. The numerically simulated results have been presented in terms of maximum fluid film pressure, minimum fluid film thickness, lubricant flow rate, direct fluid film stiffness coefficients, direct fluid film damping coefficients, and stability threshold speed. However, the proposed investigation of nonrecess hole-entry hybrid conical journal bearing shows important performance for bearing stiffness and minimum fluid film thickness at variable radial load and at given operating speed.
