Abstract:

The object of this contractual effort was to determine the feasibility of incorporating gas bearings in a small high-performance aircraft gas turbine engine. This report describes a gas generator designed to incorporate gas bearings and the studies undertaken in the bearing design process. Discussion is presented in areas of selection of bearing type, design of journal and thrust bearings, accommodation of bearing loads, thermal studies and bearing materials.
