Increased load support performance can be achieved by adding texture on the bearing surfaces. A study on the high textured effect on the hydrodynamic thrust bearing by cavitation is presented in this paper. The textured surface is applied in rectangular geometric with several dimension. The single-textured thrust bearing with several heights was analyzed by numerical methods based on Reynold’s equation and 2D CFD model analysis based on Navier-Stokes equation. The result showed that the pressure distribution with higher textured surfaces could increase the load support in hydrodynamic thrust bearings; in other words, the height of the texture will affect thrust bearing performance.
