Paper Abstract

A design procedure for flat, circular thrust bearings is presented here. The procedure is based upon a new dynamic model of the bearing and the principle of tuning the bearing's dynamic stiffness to optimize the dynamic performance of the overall, machine-bearing system. The design procedure is iterative so as to satisfy a number of different design constraints and is illustrated in an example problem.
