A non-linear theoretical model is presented to study the effect of laser surface texturing (LST) on the load carrying capacity in soft elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication (SEHL). Both geometrical and physical non-linearity of the elastomer is considered by using a logarithmic strain and the Mooney-Rivlin constitutive law, respectively. The results of the present non-linear model are compared with those of a previous linear one over a wide range of operating conditions. It is found that the two models predict the same optimum LST parameters for maximum load capacity but the non-linear model gives load capacity that is up to 10% lower than that obtained from the linear model.
