The influence of inertia terms and the effects of convection and dissipation on the characteristics of an infinitely wide cooled slider bearing are examined. The lubricant is assumed to be incompressible and the variation of viscosity with temperature is taken into account. The nondimensionalized governing equations, transformed in terms of the stream function, are solved numerically. The results verify that inclusion of the inertia terms causes an increase in the dimensionless load capacity of the bearing. Retention of the convective terms in the energy equation results in a larger dimensionless load capacity. The dissipation terms when included yield a smaller dimensionless capacity.
