In this study, the effects of groove texture on the dynamic characteristics of water-lubricated thrust bearing are theoretically investigated. The turbulent Reynolds equation and its perturbation equations for water-film lubrication are derived and solved by using finite difference method. Dynamic characteristics including the stiffness and damping coefficients of the bearing are calculated. The effects of rotary speed, film clearance and geometrical parameters including groove texture depth
