This report describes the results of an exploratory investigation aimed at providing further insight into the nature of the instabilities and into ways of avoiding them with less restriction on steam supply and environmental conditions. The results are encouraging since they show that it is possible to start steam bearings from room temperature and operate with no external heating without serious instability.
