The effects of anisotropic slip on the lubrication performance of misaligned journal bearings with herringbone grooves are discussed in this study. The modified Reynolds equation, which considered the anisotropic slips, and film thickness equation in misaligned bearings are solved numerically by the finite element method (FEM). The effects of misaligned angle and anisotropic slip on the load capacities and friction force of journal bearings are analyzed. The results show that the existence of slip boundary conditions can dilute the effects of misalignment for journal bearings. Finally, the effects of moment position and dimensionless pressure on the bearing are also discussed.
