elastohydrodynamic lubrication problem; variational equations; existence; constructive algorithm
Summary: A particular elastohydrodynamic lubrication problem is modelled in this work. The presence of elasticity, lubrication and cavitation calls for a nonlinear coupled system of variational equations. The existence of a solution is deduced by means of a constructive algorithm that decouples the biharmonic equation of the elastic hinged plate and the lubrication- cavitation Elrod-Adams free boundary problem.
