A theoretical analysis is presented for the study of pneumatic instability for a rigid rotor supported in externally pressurized porous gas journal bearings. The analysis is based on a first-order perturbation with respect to the amplitude of dynamic displacement of rotor. The variation of threshold mass parameter with feeding parameter is shown. In addition, the effects of supply pressure, eccentricity ratio, L/D ratio, and porosity parameter are investigated and presented in the form of graphs.
