The dynamic characteristics of externally pressurized, double-pad, circular thrust bearings with membrane variable flow compensation are analytically studied. Under static loads or load composed of a static and cyclic component, membrane compensation gives better overall performance characteristics than capillary (fixed flow) compensation. As the frequency increases, capillary compensation gives approximately the same performance as optimal membrane compensation when the bearing operates under pure cyclic loading
