Abstract

Numerical analyses of mixed EHL were carried out using three different analysis models for the line contact between a smooth surface and a rough surface with a single transverse sinusoidal bump. The transient Reynolds equation expressed on the coordinate system, of which the origin is fixed to the center of the Hertz contact conjunction, which is used so far in EHL or micro-EHL analyses, was inadequate for analyzing of severe asperity interactions in mixed elastohydrodynamic conditions. A hybrid model that presupposes a differentiated application of a Reynolds equation for a local coordinate system moving with asperity and a global Reynolds equation was proposed as a numerical analysis model for mixed EHL, which was enough to eliminate the aforementioned demerits. Applying the hybrid model obtained physically reasonable results both on a global and local scale.
