A simple procedure is proposed for predicting the limiting pressure and corresponding limiting of the load-carrying capacity of a foil thrust bearing. A closed-form analytical solution for the limiting load is derived, and the predictions are verified by the numerical solution. An approximate solution for limiting thrust load is also obtained and compared to the value obtained through the analytical solution. A parametric analysis is performed to examine the dependency of the limiting load on different geometric parameters for the bearing.
