In this paper, mechanical aspects of magnetic recording technology and nonimpact printing are discussed. In the recording area, theoretical and experimental aspects of air bearing theory, head/disk dynamics, and head/disk tribology are studied. Flutter of rotating disks is investigated, the flow field between rotating disks is described, and nonrepeatable run-out of disk file spindles is studied. Furthermore, the head/disk interface for flexible media is discussed and dimensional stability of flexible substrate is examined. In the printing area, experimental and theoretical investigations using continuous and drop-on-demand fluid jets are presented, and numerical calculations of the drop formation process in drop-on-demand fluid jets are described.
