Many engineering applications rely on lubricated gaps where the hydrodynamic pressure distribution is influenced by cavitation phenomena and elastic deformations. To obtain details about the conditions within the lubricated gap, solvers are required that can model cavitation and elastic deformation effects efficiently when a large amount of discret...

... t ex is the code execution time for a certain total amount of discretization cells N . The non-dimensional code execution time t ⇤ ex of the EHL-FBNS algorithm in the rigid UI case is compared with the one of the original FBNS algorithm of Woloszynski et al. [10] in Figure 4. Their code was also implemented in MATLAB © , considered rigid geometries and was discretized with the FVM, where the Poiseuille term was discretized with second order 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 Ta b l e 1 Summary of the parameters and values used in the EHL-FBNS simulations of the parallel slider with a various amount of trapezoidal pockets. ...
