The design requirements of thrust bearings for power gas turbines are discussed with reference to designs which have given satisfactory service. The shortcomings of these designs are analyzed both from the point of view of efficiency and that of service experience. The development of a new system of lubrication designed to overcome these shortcomings is outlined. It is shown that this system, when applied to tilting pad thrust bearings in power turbines, can result in a simpler bearing assembly with increased load capacity and substantially ower power losses.
