A linear theory of hybrid instability, due to a combination of both whirl and pneumatic hammer, in gas-lubricated porous journal bearings is presented. An approximate solution to the stability problem is obtained by the use of a Galerkin expansion. Results are presented in terms of the variation of stability parameters, such as the threshold mass, the whirl frequency ratio, etc., with the compressibility number and eccentricity ratio. In addition, the effects of permeability, supply pressure, and bearing length are investigated.
