The effect of external pressure exerted on foil bearings is studied. Analysis and numerical results are provided for its influence on the bearing gap. It is shown that a substantial reduction in film thickness can be achieved by applying small pressures in the inlet zone. The effect of several pertinent parameters is presented and discussed.
