The present work examines the influence of geometric irregularities of journal along with the influence of orientation of pockets on the capillary compensated 4 pocket bearing system analytically. The effect of barrel, bellmouth and circumferential undulated type irregularities of journal on the performance of bearing system was analyzed. Two type of bearing configurations were considered to evaluate the influence of pocket’s orientation. The Reynolds equation was solved by using finite element method. The numerically simulated results indicated that the effect of geometrically irregularities of journal affect the bearing performance significantly, however, the effect is dissimilar to the different orientation of pockets
