Mixed lubrication is usually related to the partition of contacts, and these latter may be divided into two categories. The first includes all asperities working in thin lubricated film (physico-chemical film) conditions. This situation corresponds to local boundary lubrication and is characterised by a local friction coefficient around 0.1. The second category contains all other asperity types. Due to the existence of a thick lubricant films asperities belonging to the second category exhibit a low friction coefficient. The global tribological behaviour for a given contact, however, is function of both categories, since it involves asperities from both categories.
