... for hydrodynamically preloaded three-pad radial AFB in the hot section. It is found that both bearing and rotor should be provided with cooling air to maintain the temperature of both the rotor and top foil below 300 °C. It is also found that the higher thermal contact resistance between the rotor and hot impellers...

... and dynamic) in an oil-free turbo blower with a 75 kW (100 HP) rate power at 30,000 rpm. The turbo blower provides a compressed air with a pressure ratio of 1.6 at a mass flow rate of 0.92 kg/s, using a centrifugal impeller installed at the rotor end. Two GFJBs with a diameter of 66mm and a length of 50 mm...

...Albert Kammerer; Reza S. Abhari Centrifugal compressors operating at varying rotational speeds, such as in helicopters or turbochargers, can experience forced response failure modes. The response of the compressors can be triggered by aerodynamic flow nonuniformities such as with diffuser-impeller...
