This paper presents a reduced full-system finite element solution of elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) problems. It aims to demonstrate the feasibility of this approach by applying it to the simple isothermal Newtonian line contact case. However the proposed model can be easily extended to more complex situations. This model is based on a full-system finite element resolution of the EHL equations: Reynolds, linear elasticity and load balance. A reduced model is proposed for the linear… Expand

Fast and reduced full-system finite element solution of elastohydrodynamic lubrication problems: Line contacts
TLDR
A reduced full-system finite element solution of elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) problems is presented, aiming to demonstrate the feasibility of this approach by applying it to the simple isothermal Newtonian line contact case and can be extended to more complex situations. Expand
Stabilized fully-coupled finite elements for elastohydrodynamic lubrication problems
TLDR
This work presents a model for elastohydrodynamic (EHD) lubrication problems that is extended to account for non-Newtonian lubricant behaviour and thermal effects and artificial diffusion procedures are introduced to stabilize the solution at high loads. Expand
Stabilized Finite Elements for Elastohydrodynamic Lubrication Problems
In this work, we are mainly interested in modelling a particular lubrication regime known as Elastohydrodynamic (EHD). The pressure generated in the conjunction is high enough to induce a significantExpand
