The equations for the axisymmetric, perfectly flexible foil bearing are solved for the case of an externally pressurized foil with porous inlet restriction. The results are presented in graphical form for design use. For comparison, results for the axisymmetric, perfectly flexible foil bearing with discrete inlet restrictors are also given.
