A theoretical analysis is presented to predict the steady state performance characteristics of externally pressurized rotating gas journal bearings incorporating the effect of velocity slip at the porous interface. The governing equation for flow in the porous media and the modified Reynolds equation derived from the Navier-Stokes equations satisfying the velocity slip boundary condition, are solved simultaneously for film pressure distribution. Due to the nonlinearity of modified Reynolds equation the solution is obtained by perturbation method using finite difference technique. The dimensionless load capacity, attitude angle and mass rate of flow are computed numerically for different operating parameters. The effect of slip on the static characteristic is discussed. Comparison of the results with similar available solution for the no-slip case shows good agreement.
