The goal of this work is to examine the exhibition attributes of HP FILM oil utilized in a journal bearing. Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO, 0.5 Wt. %) of size 40nm are utilized as an added substance to inspect the exhibition of oil. The viscosity of the oil is processed utilizing a changed Krieger–Dougherty viscosity model. The morphology of nanoparticles is concentrated with the scanning electron microscopy and X-ray beam diffraction. The investigation of pressure distribution, temperature distribution, von-mises stress, strain, and deformation for the two oils is done on Ansys fluent for working conditions determined by ASTM principles. The outcomes got in this examination are relied upon to be useful to bearing originators, scientists, and academicians worried about the applicable investigation.
