A simultaneous solution of the Reynolds equation and the flow equation for a porous matrix yields How patterns, pressure distributions, and load-carrying capacities that can be used to construct design charts. Satisfactory design procedures, however, usually embody a considerable amount of experimental information and operating experience to supplement the hydrodynamic analysis. Difficulty in qualifying the separate actions that govern bearing behavior reflects the partial hydrodynamic operation of many bearings in this class.

This high friction value is persistent with increasing Hersey number until a first threshold value is reached. This represents the dominance of boundary lubrication in determining load transfer and friction between surfaces.

Hersey number increases, a noticeable and rapid decrease in friction values is observed. This is explained by an increasing lubricant film thickness and shared load support between the surface asperities and the pressurized liquid lubricant present in the conjunction.
