    Abstract

    of contacts to a favourable condition. In this paper, the effect of surface texturing on the film thickness in parallel sliding surfaces is investigated. It is shown that surface texturing can improve film formation and, as a result, the load-carrying capacity. With the numerical model developed and by taking cavitation into account, the effect of shape, depth, size and textured area fraction on the film thickness is studied. Further, the optimum size for the most beneficial texturing pattern with respect to film thickness is discussed.
