Large bearing number stability analysis for Tango class gas bearing sliders

Abstract:

Air bearing sliders in the Tango class use load bearing pads with inlet-throttled lending edges to control the mass flux and lift. The influence of leakage or diffusion effects is always present in real sliders. In some designs such as railed taper flat designs leakage is dominant. The behavior of such sliders must be determined with numerical methods that obscure deeper understanding. Many aspects of the behavior of Tango class sliders can be understood with the vast simplification allowed b...
