Journal bearing is one of the most important components for supporting high speed rotating machinery such as compressors and turbo machines. In recent trends, non-circular journal bearings (lemon bearing, three-lobe bearing, four-lobe bearing, etc.), for their greater load capacity and better stability, have become a superior choice and found wide spread application. In this paper, the nonlinear oil film force is expressed using the dynamic stiffness and damping of 1st-3rd order. And the film thickness and pressure are analyzed using Fourier method, so that the corresponding harmonic components and their deeper connection can be further explored. The paper shows that the nonlinear dynamic performances are connected closely with the bearings’ profile, and lays the foundation for expressing the precise nonlinear oil film force.
