The dynamic behavior of an externally pressurized porous gas journal bearing is analyzed by assuming one dimensional flow through porous wall. A periodic (displacement) disturbance is imposed on the bearing, and the dynamic pressure distribution is determined by small perturbations of the Reynolds equation. Stiffness and damping for various design conditions are calculated numerically using a digital computer and presented in the form of design charts and tables.
