A numerical study examined the combined effects of journal misalignment and hydrodynamic lubrication on the stress fields of bearing liner under steady state conditions. The oil pressure, obtained by solving Reynolds equation, is imposed on a finite element model of an elastic liner bearing to calculate its stress fields. It was found that large degree of misalignment increases remarkably the oil pressure, and consequently the stresses in the bearing liner become significantly higher.
