... Abstract This article discusses the classification of sliding bearings and describes the major groups of soft metal bearing materials: babbitts, copper-lead bearing alloys, bronze, and aluminum alloys. It provides a discussion on the methods for fluid-film lubrication in bearings. The article...

... and torsion of a rotating, oscillating, or sliding shaft. The babbitt, being softer than the shaft and having excellent antifrictional qualities, prevents galling and/or scoring of the shaft over long periods of use. Compositions and selected properties of babbitts are summarized in Tables 1 and 2...

.... Plain-bearing principles have been employed in rotating mechanical devices since approximately 3000 B.C. However, the first use of a metal alloy because of its special properties for bearing service applications was probably Isaac Babbitt’s adaptation of a pewter composition in 1839. The design...
