    The application of multilevel multi-integration to the calculation of the elastic deformation integrals and the use of an alternative relaxation process in the multilevel solution of the governing equations have resulted in an algorithm solving the EHL line contact problem in 0(n In n) operations, also for highly loaded situations. The reduction in computing time thus obtained was used to solve the problem using large numbers of nodal points and to study the pressure spike. The presented algorithm will enable fast and accurate solution of surface roughness and transient problems.
