Abstract: An investigation into the performance of a self-levitating linear air bearing that functions on the squeeze film principle was conducted and a detailed set of results describing its floating characteristics at various operating parameters is presented. Experimentally assessed performance of the bearing was compared with performance predicted by a computer model of the bearing.
