An asymptotic analysis for the cylindrical squeeze-film gas journal bearing has been formulated. An approximate analytical solution is presented. Load-deflection experiments have been performed on a double-film, squeeze-film gas journal bearing. The experimental data confirm the theoretical predictions. Design curves are given for the steady-state radial load capacity and radial stiffness of the cylindrical gas journal bearing.
