- An analysis is presented to compute the film thickness, pressure and load relations between a rigid ball and rigid groove in normal approach when lubricated by a fluid with an exponential pressure-viscosity relationship. The geometry of the ball-groove system is reduced to the equivalent system of a paraboloid approaching a flat plate. Exact and approximate solutions are presented for the load and pressure relations. There is found to be a limiting load for a given geometry and lubricant regardless of the rate of approach.
