A floating bush bearing is a kind of journal bearing in which the bushing will float between the journal and bearing. Knowing the frictional coefficient is important for the determination of wear loss and power loss conditions; an appropriate test rig is used to determine friction of floating bush bearings. The frictional coefficient of bearings in dry and lubricated conditions has been examined in experiments.
