Principles Of Turbomachinery Bearings
Self-acting fluid film bearings are the predominant choice for bearings used to position the rotors of high power turbomachinery. The present paper outlines the reasons for their selection, discusses the basic phenomenon by which such bearings carry load, describes some typical bearings and points out some common causes of bearing problems.
