A single pad thrust bearing with central orifice restrictor, was fabricated and tested with a loading frame design for varying loads and supply pressures. One of the objectives of conducting the test was to obtain load verses air-gap curves for different supply pressures. The air bearing was supplied with different diameters of orifice. Another objective was to measure recess pressure at different supply pressures and loads and obtain a three dimensional plot. The recess pressure in the bearing is measured by the Smart Pressure Device. The testing of the thrust bearing enabled to validate the measurement system used. The results obtained were in good agreement with the investigations made in this field by other investigators. The sensor used also showed good repeatability and linearity, which approves its use for the measurement system.
