Abstract:

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is conducting an evaluation of candidate Brayton-cycle turbomachinery configurations. As part of this program, Pratt Whitney Aircraft has designed a turbine-compressor incorporating a single- stage axial-flow turbine driving a six-stage axial-flow compressor supported on gas bearings. The gas bearings were designed and successfully tested in a gas bearing dynamic simulator by Mechanical Technology Incorporated.
