On the instantaneous formation of cavitation in hydrodynamic lubrication

Abstract

We consider the Elrod–Adams model extending the classical lubrication Reynolds equation to the case of the possible presence of a cavitation region. We show that the behaviour of the pressure and saturation depends crucially on the behaviour of the separation h(t, x, y) among the two surfaces. In particular, we exhibit some simple formulations for which we… (More)
