The work is devoted to an analysis of the journal bearing dynamics employing a numerical model which takes into account factors related to motion and friction of non{rotating elements of the sleeve. This model yields the basis for simulations carried out in order to determine correctly dynamic characteristics of an oil{free machine rotating system at the early stage of its design and during its operation. On the basis of those simulations, the thickness of gas lm was determined as well as the pressure distribution in the bearing and its lift capacity. Moreover, the numerical program led to an analysis of proper vibrations and forced vibrations of the system under consideration. It was possible to obtain attenuation of the force and to visualize a journal trajectory for the dynamic harmonic input function. The FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) analysis of vibrations was implemented. In the spectrum, only a frequency of the input function was observed, whereas and a lack of subsynchronous frequencies pointed to the stable operation of the bearing.
