This paper presents a selection procedure for fluid film journal bearing by incorporating fuzzy approach. In this paper a fuzzy based selection model is proposed which can be applied for selection of hydrostatic, hydrodynamic and hybrid journal bearing. Selection criteria is formulated for the choice of space requirement, cost of bearing and load carrying capacity of the corresponding journal bearing. This approach provides a third dimension to the existing method of selection of bearing, which is dynamic and may be further refined to address to every individual needs. Therefore a fuzzy logic approach is used for decision making.
