Abstract : An asymptotic solution is obtained for squeeze flow between impinging spheres. The lubricant is assumed to be a four constant, nonlinear, viscoelastic liquid. The pressure peak in the lubricant is very sensitive to the values of viscoelastic constants. The results agree qualitatively with those observed experimentally. (Author)
