Abstract:

An externally pressurized axisymmetrical foil bearing was analyzed in order to obtain the qualitative effect of side leakage in a foil bearing. One or two circumferential pressure sources, symmetrically placed, were used. In the analysis, bending stiffness of the foil was included and was found to be not negligible. Curves were obtained which show the effects of the various physical parameters on the gap profile.
