Hydrodynamic Bearing

A bearing which supports the shaft on a thin film of oil, the fluid-film layer is generated by journal rotation.

Often referred to as stable lubrication due to the fact that as the lubrication temperature increases, the viscosity drops. This results in a lower coefficient of friction, that causes the lubrication temperature to drop.
