Abstract

A new model was developed for the simulation of the friction coefficient in lubricated sliding line contacts. A half-space-based contact algorithm was linked with a numerical elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication solver using the load-sharing concept. The model was compared with an existing asperity-based friction model for a set of theoretical simulations. Depending on the load and surface roughness, the difference in friction varied up to 32 %. The numerical lubrication model makes it possible to also calculate lightly loaded contacts and can easily be extended to solve transient problems. Experimental validation was performed by measuring the friction coefficient as a function of sliding velocity for the stationary case.
