Science of combatting wear. Part 8. Elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL). W.A. Glaeser and K.F. Dufrane. Lubric Engng., June 1994, 50(6), 461--464.

The incorporation of EHL techniques in machine design processes is reviewed and selection of suitable lubricants to reduce equipment failure, production losses, and maintenance costs is discussed. Equipment for determining optimum film thickness is described and illustrated. Techniques involving measurements of contact pressure, traction, and temperature are also reviewed, and their application to machine elements is described. Effects of EHL film thickness, temperature and pressure analyses are considered for designing machine elements such as roller bearings, rolling mill configurations, printing press components, and cam followers. Bearing dynamic analyses are also described. 1 refs.
