    Abstract

    For accurate prediction of Stribeck and traction curves, frictional heating must be taken into account. The temperature change will influence the viscosity of the lubricant which has an influence on the friction as well as the transition between the elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) and mixed lubrication (ML) regime. Stribeck and traction curves are calculated by changing the operational conditions like slip, sum velocity, load and lubricant inlet temperature. The results show that frictional heating has a significant effect on the friction of lubricated elliptical contacts.
