Results of the analysis of hybrid (aerostatic and aerodynamic) taperedland ournal bearings are presented. For a known bearing geometry, the Reynolds equation is reduced to a set of partial differential equations by using a first-order perturbation method. These differential equations are solved by a finite-difference numerical technique. The effects of various design and operational parameters on the load-carrying capacity and the attitude angle of the bearing were studied. The results are expressed in terms of non-dimensional parameters to enable their direct use for design purposes. © 1982.
