The development of the resistance network method (RNM) for analyzing the static behavior of arc types aerostatic grooved bearings was presented. The influence and the nonsymmetrical complexity geometry of gas film clearance was taken into account when the misalignment took place between shaft and arc type bearing due to the external nonsymmetrical load. A computer program dealing with the non-symmetrical complexity geometry of film gap clearance between the bearing and steel shaft guide was proposed.
