The effects of introducing a small amount of lubricant under pressure into a self-acting foil bearing film are investigated. Foil shape and pressure distribution under the foil are obtained by combining the equilibrium equation with the Reynolds’ equation and solving the resulting equation. The results show that the effect of even small external pressurization in a self-acting foil bearing is very important.
