A particular elastohydrodynamic lubrication problem is modelled in this work.
The presence of elasticity, lubrication and cavitation gives place to a non lin-
ear coupled system of variation al equations.
An existence result is concluded
by means of a constructive algorithm that decouples the elastic hinged plate
biharmonic equation and the lubrication-cavitation Elrod- Adams free boundary
Since the presentation of the governing equations for the lubrication problem
in the hydrodynamic case (see Reynolds ) a lot of effort has been done in the
domain of elastohydrodynamic lubrication in three areas: mathematical mod-
elling, theoretical analysis and numerical solution algorithms.
In this work the
authors try to contribute in the previous three aspects for a particular elastohy-
