Analysis of the dynamic behavior of planar foil bearings is presented for the case when both self acting and external pressurization effects are present. From it, responses to arbitrary disturbances or initial conditions may be deduced. Graphical examples for the film response to step reduction in tension and to a moving pressurization source are shown.
