A complete numerical solution of Newtonian thermal compressible elastohydrodynamic lubrication of rolling/sliding point (circular) contact has been obtained. The multilevel multigrid technique was used to solve the simultaneous system of thermal Reynolds, elasticity and the energy equations with their boundary conditions. The effects of various loads, speeds, and slip conditions on the lubricant temperature, film thickness, and friction force have been investigated. The results indicate that the temperature rise in the contact is significant and thermal effects cannot be neglected.
