    I want to find the coefficient of friction. could you pls provide me how to determine the friction coefficient for journal bearing. It is urgent..

    Err.. what do u already know about this bearing? If u know enough parameter I suppose you could use Petroff's equation to find the coefficient of friction?

    If can't then I'm not too sure about it too, perhaps have a look at the textbook "Fundamentals of Machine Component Design" by Juvinall ?

    Hope this helps
