Experimental evaluation of foil-supported resilient-pad gas-lubricated thrust bearing / By Zolton N. Nemeth and United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration. A new type of resilient-pad gas thrust bearing was tested to determine the feasibility of the design.

The bearing consists of carbon graphite pads mounted asymmetrically on foil beams. Thrust bearing supports the thrust load comprising of the rotor weight and the difference of pressure between the turbine and the compressor ends. The radial load arises primarily due to the rotor imbalance and is taken up by a pair of aerodynamic journal by: In conventional air foil thrust bearing which uses bump foil to support the top foil but the present work involves without the use of bump foil and considering top foil as a load carrying member.

Lecture 18 Aerostatic Bearings Aerostatic Bearings • Aerostatic bearings utilize a thin film of high-pressure air to support a load.

Since air has a very low viscosity, bearings gaps need to be small, on the order of μm. • There are five basic types of aerostatic bearing geometries: single pad, opposed pad, journal, rotary thrust, andFile Size: KB. This fundamental investigation of the thermo-fluid dynamics of a gas lubricated bearing forms part of a wider programme aimed at their introduction into the aeroengine environment.

This study aims to analyze the flow characteristics and the thermal features of foil thrust bearing. The flow in the gas film is modeled with 2D compressible Reynolds equation including effects of centrifugal forces in the gas film.
