Oil-film pressure response is one of the key parameters that describe the operating conditions in hydrodynamic lubrication regimes. In the present study, a fuzzy logic model is developed to predict the maximum oil-film pressure in hydrodynamic plain journal bearing. In the development of predictive model, journal bearing parameters of rotational speed, bearing load and oil-feed pressure are considered as model independent variables. For this purpose, a number of experiments, based Box-Behnken experiment Design technique (BBD), are performed to observe the maximum oil-film pressure values. The results revealed that the model is able to predict maximum oil-film pressure adequately.
