A number of lubricants in the well known classes denoted by MIL-L-23699 and MIL-L-7808 specifications and a traction fluid are investigated for their traction behavior in rolling sliding contacts. The experimental traction data are reduced to simple rheological models and the appropriate coefficients are computed. The reduced models are presented in a form which is readily adaptable to the rolling bearing performance simulation computer programs.
