The effect of mass injection on the heat generated due to viscous dissipation in a porous thrust bearing is investigated analytically by solving the governing boundary layer equations. Numerical results are given for the velocity and temperature distributions as well as the wall derivatives of the velocity and temperature functions. The range of Prandtl numbers investigated was from 0.7 to 10 and the cross flow Reynolds number was varied from 0.001 to 50.
