Steady-state compressible isothermal lubrication problems are analyzed by the p-version finite element formulation in conjunction with the Newton-Raphson iteration procedure. Test examples confirm that this is an effective formulation for solving finite width bearing problems, and that, even for high bearing number (Λx > 1000) and coarse mesh situations, numerical solutions are accurate and converge rapidly.
