A theoretical study of thin fluid film flows between rotating and stationary disks is presented. Inertia terms are included using an averaged method. It is assumed that inertia effects do not influence the shape of velocity profiles. The model is validated by comparison with experimental data and previous theoretical studies. A ThermoElastoHydroDynamic analysis of a hydrostatic seal is performed. The great influence of inertia terms on leakage rate prediction is shown.
