A solution procedure for the determination of the oil film thickness of a guide shoe bearing for a large two stroke marine diesel engine is presented. Based on a previous study considering oil film thickness of a guide shoe bearing with rigid structural parts a model for the interaction between structure and oil film is implemented. The model takes into account the elastic deformation of the bearing parts. An iterative procedure for determining pressure, deformation and squeeze velocity is applied. The results are compared to a traditional calculation of rigid components. The model of the structure is a 3D finite element model and the oil film description is made using a 2D finite difference mesh.
