An apparatus for measuring dynamic friction in a lubricated journal bearing is described. This apparatus has been designed, constructed and used to measure friction in the presence of sinusoidally-varying velocity at various frequencies. Experimental results tend to confirm theoretical predictions which are based on the hydrodynamic lubrication theory.
