Abstract : In this note, numerical algorithms are developed and implemented for the treatment of laminar lubricating film temperatures associated with cavitated regions. The reformation front, with its film content discontinuity and flow reversal, is given special attention. Computational economy is achieved through the use of Lobatto point locations for flow property determinations.
