This paper describes a theoretical study concerning static performance of four pocket rectangular recess hybrid journal bearing. Effect of recess length and width variation, number of recess variation on the load bearing capacity and oil flow parameter for rectangular recess has been carried out. The Reynolds equation for non rotating recessed hybrid bearing was solved on a high speed computer satisfying appropriate boundary conditions and using finite difference method. Various results for different recess axial length to bearing axial length, different recess circumferential length to circumferential length of bearing, various L/D ratios and number of recesses are presented. © 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
