Pagination or Media Count:
In self pressurized gas bearings with cylindrical journals and opposed spiral grooved thrust plates, the thrust plates are frequently placed at opposite ends of the journal bearing. The effect of flow along the journal on the thrust stiffness of this type of bearing assembly is shown to be important in some cases. A comparison with some experimental results is included. Author
