Title (EN) IMPROVED FOIL THRUST BEARING
(FR) PALIER DE BUTEE A FEUILLE AMELIORE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A hydrodynamic process or gas bearing is disclosed which includes an integral compliant foil thrust disk (16) defining a plurality of foil elements (20), the radially outer edge of the disk (16) being displaced from the major bearing surface to form a circumferential step (24) having a varying height profile. The integral compliant foil thrust disk (16) may in the alternative or in addition, include a plurality of radially outwardly extending tabs (36) to locally increase the flexural rigidity of the disk (16).
(FR)Un palier à gaz hydrodynamique comprend un disque de poussée incorporé à feuille déformable (16) définissant une pluralité d'éléments de feuilles (20), le bord radialement extérieur du disque (16) étant déplacé de la surface portante principale pour former un échelon circonférentiel (24) ayant un profil de hauteur variable. Le disque de butée (16) incorporé à feuille déformable peut éventuellement avoir plusieurs oreilles (36) s'étendant radialement vers l'extérieur pour augmenter localement la rigidité de flexion du disque (16).
