Squeeze films in an axially undefined porous journal bearing with a full film of lubricant are analyzed to determine their performance. The expressions for pressure distribution and load capacity are given in closed form. The time-height relation is obtained by numerical integration. The results are shown graphically. It is found that the time required for the film to reduce in thickness is significantly less as compared to a nonporous bearing.
