Abstract

In this paper, the pure squeeze thin film elastohydrodynamic lubrication (TFEHL) motion of circular contacts with electric double layer (EDL) is explored under constant load condition. The coupled transient modified Reynolds, elasticity deformation, the load balance, and lubricant rheology equations were solved simultaneously by using the finite difference method and the Gauss-Seidel iteration method. The simulation results reveal that the effect of electric double layer produces an obvious increase in the film thickness and apparent viscosity. The greater the Zeta-potential, the greater the apparent viscosity, and the greater the film thickness.
