The end effect attenuation in finite length line contacts is mainly approached for cylindrical bodies. Multi-radius crowning may remove end effects in tapered roller contacts. Another method for leveling maximum pressure in these contacts is the use of polynomial generatrix. This paper investigates the effect of this generatrix in tapered roller contacts. An improved pressure distribution is obtained. This has a nearly flat maximum value along most of contact length.
