The authors are concerned with the problem of cavitation in a finite width journal bearing when nonregular conditions are apparent on the reformation interface. Since in this case the standard variational inequality approach is not appropriate, the problem is modelled by a nonlinear variational equation. The main emphasis is on the proof of existence and uniqueness of a solution to that equation.
