Calculated data on steady-state and dynamic properties of the plain cylindrical floating-ring bearing with pressurized lubricant supply are given. The data are for a bearing with L/D of 1, and values of the ratio of inner to outer film clearances of 0.7 and 1.3. One value of dimensionless supply pressure parameter is covered. Experimental results are presented which verify the calculated results and which supplement them, particularly with respect to stability characteristics of the bearing.
