This document specifies the method for comparing performance evaluation results for a foil thrust bearing that supports load with aerodynamic force generated by the rotation of a driving shaft and lubricates using air, not lubricating oil. The test procedure explained in this document measures and evaluates the static load capacity, bearing torque, friction coefficient and lifetime of the foil thrust bearing and compares the test results to those for different test conditions. The measured static load capacity can be varied depending on the capabilities of the test device used.
