The traditional 8-coefficient bearing model, used in linear rotor dynamics, is shown here to be inadequate for the unbalance response calculation of rotor systems supported on hydrodynamic journal bearings placed close to nodal points of excited modes of vibration. In such situations, one cannot neglect the time varying tilt angle between journals and bearings, whose consideration leads to the adoption of a 32-coefficient bearing model. Numerical results indicate that the differences between vibration amplitudes calculated using both bearing models can be greater than 100%, while discrepancies in the predicted stability thresholds are small. The conclusions of the study are coherent with previously published theoretical and experimental results.
