This note provides additional graphical representations and curve-fit expressions for characteristics of the Warner–Sommerfeld approximate solution of the Reynolds equation for cavitating journal finite bearings. In particular, curve-fit expressions for mobility components, end-leakage factor, and positive film pressure extent are provided in support of previously published graphical representations of the data.
