Measurements of lubricant shear rheological behavior in the amorphous solid region and near the liquid-solid transition are reported on three lubricants under pressure. Elastic, plastic and viscous behavior was observed. The maximum yield shear stress (limiting shear stress) is a function of temperature and pressure and is believed to be the property which determines the maximum traction in elastohydrodynamic contacts such as traction drives.
