Abstract

Experimental determination of circumferential pressure in model labyrinth seals demonstrated significant lateral force for parallel eccentricity. Entry swirl was a major influence and theoretical stability calculations indicated the possibility of forward whirl. The ratio of whirl frequency to rotational speed was considerably greater than 0. 5.
