This paper analyses the thermal and roughness effects on different characteristics of an infinitely long tilted pad slider bearing considering heat conduction through both the pad and slider. The roughness is assumed to be stochastic, Gaussian randomly distributed. Density and viscosity are assumed to be temperature dependent. The irregular domain of the fluid due to roughness is mapped to a regular domain so that the numerical method can be easily applied. The modified Reynolds equation, momentum equation, continuity equation, energy equation and the heat conduction equations on the pad and slider are coupled and solved using finite difference method to yield various bearing characteristics. The solutions with respect to different pad and slider boundary conditions are elaborated through tables and figures.
