Slip modification of the lubricated bearing such hydrophobic coating has proven to improve the hydrodynamic performance. The present paper investigates the effect of partial slip on the journal bearing performance using computational fluid dynamic (CFD) approach. The eccentricity ratio and the placement of slip area are of particular interest. It was shown that the partial slip placement on the convergent region of the bearing generally improves the hydrodynamic performance lubrication by increasing load support. It was also found that introducing partial slip on the divergent area decreases the lubrication performance of journal bearing.
