The effect of longitudinal and transverse roughness on the elastohydrodynamic lubrication of circular contacts was investigated numerically for two different lubricating conditions. The influence of the amplitude and the wavelength of the roughness texture was also studied. The results are compared with predictions from the flow factor method.
