    Abstract

    In this chapter the Elasto-Hydrodynamic Lubrication (EHL) theory is described for both oil and grease lubrication. Subsequently, starvation effects are described (both mild and severe starvation). Finally, contact replenishment by surface tension, thin film viscous flow, grease softening and ball spin is treated.
