Numerical analyses have been carried out for the elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) in line contacts under both fully flooded and starved conditions. The thermal effect and the Ree-Eyring non-Newtonian flow have been taken into account. The relation between the inlet meniscus and the thickness of the available lubricant layer has been investigated and it has been found that a very thin layer of available lubricant film on the moving surface is enough to fill the gap downstream the meniscus, making the contact work under a fully flooded condition. The pressures, film profiles, temperature distributions and the traction coefficients have been discussed. The thermal non-Newtonian results have been compared with the thermal and isothermal Newtonian results.
