A full numerical methodology was developed for the elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication analysis of hip joint implants for the lubrication problem in spherical and conformal contacts. Typical results of a metal-on-metal hip implant were obtained to illustrate the applicability of the numerical methodology developed in the present study.
