The Dimensionless Load Capacity of a Plane, Finite, Rectangular-Pad, Slider Bearing - An Analytical Solution Suitable for Small Computers 831223

An analytical solution is given for W, the dimensionless load-capacity of a plane, finite, rectangular-pad, slider bearing. This solution is suitable for small computers so that students of tribology can carry out calculations on a realistic bearing without having to use a large computer which may not be readily available. The solution described is superior to that obtained by the use of standard numerical methods on Reynolds equation because it is obtained more rapidly, it needs less computer memory storage space and can be carried out in single precision.
