Article Preview

The static performance of an aerostatic bearing with angled surface self-slot-compensation is analyzed. The consistent condition was applied to unitize the Reynolds equation of different forms and the finite element method (FEM) was used to solve the equation. The load carrying capacity (LCC) and the stiffness of the bearing was obtained and the influence of the geometric parameters was discussed. It is concluded that this self-compensating aerostatic bearing can achieve a good performance; the geometric parameters of the gap are interactive, and should be rationally matched.
