The Reynolds equation is derived for the general case of a dynamically loaded journal bearing, where both wedge and squeeze films are active and the load and speed of rotation vary with time in magnitude and direction. The bearing characteristics for an infinitely long journal bearing are obtained. The dynamic behaviour of squeeze films in a half journal bearing under a fluctuating load with no journal rotation is considered in detail. © 1977.
