A fast multilevel solver for the solution of the elastohydrodynamically lubricated circular contact problem has been applied to the standard situation assuming the running surfaces to be perfectly smooth. Pressure profiles and film shapes for various operating conditions, are shown and overview graphs of the minimum, central and average film thickness as a function of the governing parameters covering a wide range of operating conditions are presented.
