摘要

The coupled effects of surface roughness and flow rheology on elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) circular contact problems are analyzed and discussed. The averaged type Reynolds equation utilizing the average flow model on the interactions between couple stress fluids and surface roughness, the elastic deformation equation, the viscosity-pressure and density-pressure relations equations, and the force balance equation are solved numerically by the multilevel multi-integration (MLMI) algorithm to calculate the pressure distributions and film thickness shapes. The results show that the transverse type roughness and standard deviation of composite roughness enhance the pressure and film thickness in the central contact region. Moreover, the longer the characteristic length of the couple stress fluids is, the smaller the pressure distribution is in the central contact region and the greater the film thickness is in all regions.
