An experimental investigation was conducted at Cornell University as a part of a research program sponsored by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics to study the behavior of full journal bearings under steady load when acted upon by a steady misalining couple. Displacements of the ends of the journal axis relative to the bearing axis were measured with either an axial couple applied in the plane of the central load or a twisting couple in the plane normal to the central load.
