...Nguyen LaTray; Daejong Kim The integration of foil bearing technology into high-speed oil-free machines has been slow in progress, in part, due to the low load-carrying capacity of the foil thrust bearing. It is crucial this issue is addressed through innovative solutions without overcomplicating...

... to the radial FBs, and thus rotordynamics stability is more challenging than load capacity. However, a main challenge of gas foil thrust bearings (GFTBs) is how to increase the load capacity, and the challenge remains the same regardless of the size. In previous publications on experimental studies on GFTBs...
