Abstract:

The axisymmetrical foil bearing was studied along with effects of compressibility. The pressure and gap profiles were found by numerically integrating the governing equations. The results were compared with the corresponding results obtained in a previous report on an approximate solution of the same problem assuming incompressible flow. Author
