In this paper we present a coupled method for modelling fluid-solid interaction within a crack generated in rolling contact fatigue (RCF) in the presence of lubrication. The technique describes the fluid flow in the contact area and within the crack and explores how this affects the elastic deformation of the solid while the moving load traverses the cracked region. It is argued that this approach sheds light on the instantaneous response of the system, therefore providing a more physically-accurate description of the phenomenon under investigation.
