Abstract : The application of gas bearings to an actual machine design - The Forced-Draft Blower - is illustrated. The design represents a machine which takes full advantage of the potential gained by using gas bearings. This bearing application study relates the bearing design to the curves presented in Part II of this report. Emphasis is placed upon the methods of fixing the design. The other important system features are checked to determine the adequacy of the design - stress, temperatures, steam conditioning, and rotor response.
