In this paper gaseous cavitation in steady-state and transient lubrication problems is considered. Both conventional numerical procedures, associated with the Reynolds cavitation model, and a new finite element analysis for implementation of the Jakobson-Floberg model are presented. Applications to circumferentially supplied bearings and to seals are given.
