The dynamic bearing coefficients are obtained from a solution to the variational equivalent of Reynolds equation. A perturbation method is applied to find the individual dynamic coefficients. The Finite Element Method is used in the numerical evaluation of the equations. The flow is assumed to be laminar, the lubricant is Newtonian. Allowance is made for viscosity-temperature dependency in circumferential and axial directions.
