This report describes the first years effort on a program that has as its objective the development of nitrogen gas lubricated journal and thrust bearings that have the best potential for stable operation at temperature to 1900 F and speeds to 60,000 RPM with low flow rates. The program concentrated on attaining quantitative performance data on dynamic rotor bearing behavior. The report summarizes materials selection, bearing types, equipment design, intrumentation, and experimental work. Author
