In this paper, the nonlinear dynamic behaviour of vertical and horizontal rotors in compliant tilting pad journal bearings has been investigated. White metal and compliant bearings with line pivot pads are compared. The dynamic response of four pad bearings with different preload factors is studied. The effect of viscoelasticity is also considered in comparison with purely elastic compliant and white metal liners. The influence of radial clearance and pad offset is analysed. It is shown how pad design parameters such as preload factor, pivot offset, viscoelasticity of the liner, and radial clearance can be selected to control the size of the journal orbit in compliant bearings.
