Abstract : A technique for the solution of time dependent foil bearing problems is presented. Solutions obtained for typical disturbances which are introduced into the bearing, indicate that they are swept out at a speed of, essentially, U/2. The effects of higher foil stiffness on this phenomenon are found to be small. (Author)
