Abstract : The stability of a gas bearing is treated by a new procedure in which the bearing film is characterized by its responses to step-jump displacements. Duhamel's theorem is invoked to generalize these step responses in a system of dynamical equation. Stability is determined by calculation of a 'growth factor for each degree of freedom. (Author)
