Elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) film thickness and rolling resistance play a critical role in determining friction, wear, life, and other tribological characteristics of rolling bearings. Although film thickness formulas are widely used and experimentally verified, accurate prediction of the film thickness is still difficult under starved conditions. This paper presents a numerical study of starved EHL point contacts using a nonuniform inlet film thickness obtained from a modified Coyne–Elrod boundary condition. An experimental verification of the numerical results is also presented. Based on the results of a parametric study, inlet distance formulas are obtained as a function of the initial film thickness, the fully flooded central film thickness, and the capillary number. By using the inlet distance formulas and the Hamrock–Dowson formulas, the central film thickness, the minimum film thickness, and the viscous rolling resistance can be calculated.
