A technique for the solution of time-dependent foil bearing problems is presented in this report. Solutions obtained for typical disturbances which are introduced into the bearing indicate that they are swept out at a speed of, essentially, U/2. The effects of higher foil stiffness on this phenomenon are found to be small.
