Abstract:

This report gives an analytical solution for the axial flow of gas in gas-film lubricated journal bearings with film thickness varying around the journal, when subjected to different constant end pressures. The mass flow formulae are shown to be the same as for stationary concentric circular cylinders, except that the clearance cubed is replaced by the mean of the clearance cubed. An extended form of Elrods mass content rule is also obtained.
