Keywords: hydrodynamic lubrication, transient EHL problem, EHL stiffness distribution, EHL damping distribution.
In this paper, a new method is proposed to illustrate the transient elasto-hydrodynamically lubricated (EHL) problem. A steady-state solution of the EHL problem is obtained as the initial state of a dynamic load-increasing (or -decreasing) procedure. Based on the continuous acquisition of the EHL stiffness and damping distributions, dynamic mechanical behaviours of oil film are predicted, using a balance calculation of the load increment. Meanwhile, the availability of the EHL stiffness and damping distributions is in correctly proved by acquiring a nearly ideal transient EHL solution. This method can be efficiently used to analyse dynamic film contact for some engineering objects, such as bearing, gear and wheel-rail link (water film in rainy days), etc.
