This paper analyzes the load-carrying capacity of the externally pressurized gas journal bearing, including the effect of journal rotation and vibration. The analysis assumes small eccentricity ratio and small vibration amplitude such that a first-order perturbation solution is obtained. The gas is fed to the bearing through orifice-restricted feeding holes around the circumference in one or two feeding planes. The number of feeding holes is sufficiently large to permit treating the feeding planes as line sources. Results are given for the load-carrying capacity and the attitude angle.
