In this paper, computer-aided design optimization approach for hydrostatic bearings is presented. The optimization problem is formulated in multicriteria strategy. The power loss and the temperature rise of oil are considered as performance measures for optimal hydrostatic bearing design. Optimization results indicate the effectiveness of the proposed combined approach which has advantages over the single criteria optimization. Sample results are presented to verify the proposed approach.
