An Analysis is performed on load carrying capacity, friction variable and flow coefficient of micro elliptical textured journal bearing. In which texture density and texture depth are varied for better performance of journal bearing. Here elliptical dimples are used. For different texture depths, different performance characteristics are tested.When texture density and texture portion are concerned, there is increase in load carrying capacity has been observed with increase of texture density or texture portion and further Increase in flow and decrease in friction variable has been observed.
Keywords: micro elliptical texture, Hydro Dynamic Lubrication, Journal Bearing, Finite Difference Method.
