Abstract

Treating viscosity as a function of temperature and pressure, the problem of the slider bearing without side leakage and with film thickness varying exponentially is solved exactly for the case of adiabatic flow. An approximate solution is developed, applicable to both finite and infinite sliders. This approximate solution is found to check very closely with the exact solution for the infinite-slider case.
