A theoretical analysis for the static characteristics of an aerostatic porous rectangular thrust bearing with an offset load, for both open and sealed end configurations, is presented considering three-dimensional flow in the porous matrix. Static characteristics for different operating parameters are calculated numerically and presented in dimensionless form as design charts. The effect of tilt is discussed.
