Hello friends,
I am simulating hydrodynamic journal bearing. I want to calculate load carrying capacity of the journal bearing. I have static pressure contour result with me. I have read that :
"The calculation of forces acting on the journal is performed with the integration of pressure in the area of the journal."

I have exported the pressure forces on the journal as *.cdb file. Can anyone help me how to integrate these forces to get loads?
