The temperature distribution in the lubricating film of journal bearings for the three-dimensional case is obtained by using the results already known regarding the pressure distribution in the film and by integrating the energy equation. Relations for the divergent and convergent zones of the bearing are established by taking into account the viscosity and the side leakage; the distribution of the temperature along the bearing width is also considered. Comparisons between the theoretical values and experimental measurements are also performed, resulting in good agreement.
