An approximate method for mid-film temperature and traction force in elastohydrodynamic (EHD) lubrication of sliding contacts is obtained. The results are obtained at the point of maximum pressure where the pressure gradient is zero. The results indicate excellent correlation exists between this approximate method and results of a previous paper by the authors [1].
