Paper Abstract

The accuracy of air bearing systems is related in most cases to the static stiffness of the bearing. In practice the stiffness which can be achieved is related to the selection of optimum design parameters. This paper considers journal bearings and discusses the parameters which control bearing performance. Guidance is given to assist the designer in specifying the optimal conditions of each controlling parameter. A graphical design procedure is discussed which enables the designer to interrelate all aspects of design in a simple to use technique whilst still retaining optimal ranges for each parameter involved.
