The thermohydrodynamic (THD) lubrication model of reference [1], tested and shown to be valid in both laminar and superlaminar flow regimes, is applied here to a series of geometrically similar, but of different size, bearings. The resulting parametric study shows significant thermal effects on both the static and the dynamic performance of the bearings.
