This paper forms part of a wider investigation which includes the theoretical analysis given in Part I in addition to a study of the outlet cavitation boundary, using high-speed cine photography, reported elsewhere [4]. Pressure and some load measurements are presented which show good agreement with the theoretical predictions despite the well-known shortcomings of the Swift-Stieber boundary condition used in the analysis. Two sets of results have been included to cover the pure squeeze-film problem in addition to that of combined rolling, sliding and “normal” motion.
