Abstract : This report provides the theoretical background, the numerical procedures and a comparison with test results for a PC-based computer program for computing traction force components and torque in an elastohydrodynamically lubricated contact. The program provides a comprehensive tribological assessment of a general lubricated, concentrated contact under combined rolling, spinning and sliding. The joint effect of 34 input variables can be considered in the descriptive characteristics of the contact. Keywords: Traction, Modelling, Traction model.
