The Finite Element Method is used to investigate the influence of the stiffness of the housing and the backing, as well as the thickness of the antifriction lining on stresses due to lubricant film pressure in two-layered precision insert bearings. These factors are expected to affect the fatigue life of the bearings. The pressure input is obtained through a conventional hydrodynamic analysis. Results for the hoop stress at the surface of the bearing as well as for the shear stress at the interface between the lining and the backing show regions of stress concentrations, which may contribute to the initiation of failure.
