The thermoelastohydrodynamic (TEHD) behavior of a finite inclined-plane slider bearing is studied. The fluid film momentum, continuity, and energy equations are coupled to the heat conduction equations and the elasticity equations of the solid, and solved numerically. The elastic and thermal distortions of the solid as well as the variation of fluid properties with temperature are considered in the analysis. Several models for the bearing solids are treated.
