Part 2 begins by describing the numerical solution procedures of the hybrid lubrication problem. Results of the computation are then presented that include the detailed pressure and temperature distribution in the oil film, the required supply pressure for maintaining the prescribed minimum oil film thickness, the fluid friction acting on the worm coil surface, the mass flow rate of supply oil, and the power loss associated with the restrictor flow. The feasibility of the hydrostatically lubricated wormgear transmission is discussed in light of these results.
