Gas-bearing design supported by artificial intelligence

One of the most discussed issues at the Gas Bearing Workshop 2023 was how artificial intelligence (AI) is being applied to reduce the computational efforts for designing gas bearings.

Several presenters shared their experiences with this new way of working. Presentations of other developments and new guidelines in the field of foil bearings, herringbone-grooved bearings, coatings for foil bearings, and porous bearings showed that these also stretch the boundaries of potential gas-bearing applications, of which several examples were highlighted.
