    • Abstract


      In the present study, entropy production in flow fields due to slider bearings is formulated. The rate of entropy generation is computed for different fluid properties and geometric configurations of the slider bearing. In order to account for the non-Newtonian effect, a special type of third-grade fluid is considered. It is found that the rate of entropy generation is influenced significantly by the height of the bearing clearance and the non-Newtonian parameter of the fluid.
