This investigation covers the regimes of operation of an unidirectionally loaded sleeve bearing. The particular journal studied was a hardened steel member oscillating through 30 , at various loads and speeds in a hardened steel bushing. From the results it was concluded that there were possibly four regimes of operation. The coefficient of friction with constant load and increasing speed was found to decrease and then to increase. Three methods were used in the investigation to determine the lubricating characteristics: friction measurement, oil film resistance, and radioactive tracer.
