Abstract

Abstract The customarily neglected effect on the load capacity of hydrostatic thrust-bearings of the lubricant inertia is examined here for both liquid and gaseous lubricants. It is found that for liquid lubricants load capacities calculated by neglecting inertia can be significantly in error even at normal operating speeds. For gaseous lubricants the effect is the same for low recess pressures but tends to lessen at higher recess pressures.
