The full thermal EHD lubrication analysis is applied, therefore, the oil viscosity variation with respect to pressure and temperature and the density variation with respect to pressure are included. By using the corresponding computer program, the influence of oil viscosity, pressure-viscosity and temperature-viscosity exponents, supplied oil temperature, speed and minimum oil film thickness on maximum oil film pressure and temperature, EHD load carrying capacity, and on power losses in the oil film is investigated. Small part of the obtained results is presented and discussed.
