The elastohydrodynamic lubrication of two rollers in combined rolling and sliding is considered. A simple rheological model to predict the traction is presented. The model is based upon an exponential pressure dependent viscosity at low pressures and a linear shear stress/pressure relationship at high pressures. The slope of the latter is assumed to be a function of the rolling and sliding velocities. The model is used to analyze the traction data of two recently published experimental investigations of other authors and good agreement is achieved in most cases. The model should be of considerable use to designers in the preliminary analysis of rolling contact systems in combined rolling and sliding.
