The importance of temperature and elasticity effects in bearings have been demonstrated by several authors. This paper offers an efficient method for the simultaneous solution of the Reynolds and energy equations and their coupling with elastic deformation results obtained by variational techniques. Results are presented for centrally pivoted, tilting-pad, sector, thrust bearings.
