There is a considerable amount of study carried out on textured hydrodynamic bearings. The numerical solution of textured bearings is a matter of concern for the researchers. There are several methods used to estimate the performance parameters of textured bearings. However, progressive mesh densification (PMD) method is not yet used for textured bearings while it has been used for mixed elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) and thermo-EHL problems. In the present analysis, the PMD method is implemented to estimate the performance parameters of the textured journal bearing. It is compared with the multigrid and the fixed mesh methods and found to be very effective in improving computational efficiency.
