The virtual contact loading method is further developed in this paper tostudy the multi-body contact phenomena within solid and hollow roller bearings. The distributive virtual contact loads are used to simulate the contact constraint forces on each contact surface. The deepest penetration criterion is proposed to select and determine the contact nodes in an orderly way, so as to ensure the local iteration process converged and to increase the computational efficiency. The load distributions within the solid and hollow roller bearings have been studied in more detail and some reasonable results are obtained.
