This paper describes a thermohydrodynamic analysis of the 19 in. diameter tilting-pad journal bearing for steam turbine in comparison with experimental data. The three-dimensional thermohydrodynamic analysis is performed in both laminar and turbulent flow regimes considering mixing inlet temperature. The linearized turbulent flow model derived by Ng and Pan (1965) is applied. Generally good agreement is obtained for bearing surface temperatures, frictional losses, and minimum film thicknesses between the theoretical and experimental results.
