The viscous dissipation of micropolar lubricant results in temperature increase of hole-entry hybrid journal bearing. Thermohydrostatic (THS) performance characteristics are computed by the concurrent solution of micropolar Reynolds, micropolar energy, and conduction equations. The results obtained numerically indicate that bearing is significantly affected by increase in temperature. Hence, it is essential to consider the thermal effects for bearing operating with micropolar lubricant to produce realistic bearing characteristic data.
