Abstract:

Operational characteristics of a rotor when supported on self-acting, gas-lubricated journal bearings are reported. Experimental results for the evaluation of several parametric changes are noted. Some of these parameters included in the investigation are 1 elevated ambient pressure up to 500 psig, 2 clearance ratio, 3 length to diameter ratio, 4 bearing load, and 5 bearing orientation.
