Abstract : Numerical solutions are presented for the film thickness of the infinitely wide, self-acting foil bearing for various values of tape stiffness. The solutions indicate that with increasing stiffness there are: a slow reduction in the nearly uniform clearance prevailing under most of the wrap angle; an increase in the peak of the undulations occurring in the region where the tape leaves the spindle; and virtually no change in the trough of these undulations.
