The Static characteristics of water lubricated journal bearings with three axial grooves for various L/D ratios are obtained theoretically. The bearing is supplied with water from one end. In the clearance space of the bearing water is subjected to both velocity and pressure induced flow. The Reynolds equation is solved numerically by a finite difference method satisfying the boundary conditions. The pressure distribution in the clearance space gives the steady state characteristics in terms of load carrying capacity, attitude angle, volume flow rate and friction variabl As expected load carrying capacity is better in smaller groove angles. The data obtained from the above analysis can be used conveniently in the design of such bearings as these are presented in dimensionless form
