Finite element equations are developed for studying surface temperatures resulting from frictional heating in sliding systems. The equations include the effect of velocity of moving components, an effect which is found to be quite significant, even at low sliding velocities. A program was written using the equations and it was applied to the study of surface temperatures in two different sliding systems: dry or boundary lubricated sleeve bearings and a labyrinth gas path seal configuration. Very good agreement was achieved between analytical predictions using the program and experimental temperature measurements. The program was used to study the influence of various material parameters on surface temperatures in the two sliding systems.
