Calculation of load, friction and eccentricity of the pivot point
 Lenght at right angle of motion  L/B
 Length in direction of motion  B mm   
 Sliding velocity  V m/s   
 Lubricant viscosity  η  Pas  
 Mimimum film thickness  h0 m
 
 Dimensionless friction number  Ff*
 Dimensionless film thickness  h0*
 Dimensionless eccentricity pivot point  ε=e/B
 Coefficient of friction  =Ff/F 
 Load capability single plane slider (1)  F kN
  (1) Compromise between minimal friction and maximal film thickness.
