Gas bearings are used to support rotating parts in a wide range of applicationsfrom heads in computer disk drives to gyroscopes. Its advantage is the very low viscosity of air compared to that of most oils used in lubrication. This book discusses models for the behavior of gas bearings, particularly those aspects that affect the stability of the system. It begins with a discussion of the mathematical models and applies these results to the design of gas-lubricated bearings.
