This paper aims to study a fully coupled thermal effect in the contact parts - lip surface, rotary shaft and lubricant film - on the elastohydrodynamic behaviour of radial lip seals. The results obtained show that most operating characteristics such as reverse pumping, minimal thickness and power loss are strongly influenced by the temperature distribution in the contact zone. Therefore, all operating characteristics computed by using the local approach are lower than those obtained by using the global approach.
