COMPOSITE SLIDER BEARING
Fig. a. Graph of w US.b for various values of ho/hi. (a ) and (b), ho/hi = 2; (c) and (d), ho/hi = B~IBI = 0.2. (e) and (f), hohi = 6. - - -, Bz/Bi = o; -,
It can be seen here that the bearing can support the load even when the slider velocity
is zero. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
My thanks are due to PROF. J. N. KAPUR for his valuable advice and guidance and to MR. V. P. TYAGI for the numerical work done in this paper. REFERENCES 1 W. T.

Sponsored by The British Hydromechanics Research Association and held at the College of Aeronautics, Cranfield, from April 6th to 8th, 1964, this Conference was attended by two hundred delegates from many countries. In the course of the three days some thirty-seven technical papers were presented in eight technical sessions. The Conference sessions were generally devoted to a particular topic, sometimes to a particular type of seal-such as the mechanical seal or the rubber oil seal-and sometimes to a particular application--such as seals for large turbines, pumps and ship propeller shafts. The approach to the subject ranged from the purely academic to the severely practical and this leavening proved mutually beneficial to manufacturers, users and research scientists alike. The full conference Proceedings will be published under the auspices of the B.H.R.A., from whom they will be available in .4ugust, 1964, price $23.8.0.
