How to determine the lubrication condition when the oil amount is limited?
In their article “Numerical investigation of effects on replenishment in rolling point contacts using CFD simulations” Dennis Fischer, Stephan von Goeldel, Georg Jacobs and Andreas Stratmann examine the lubricant supply by replenishment in the vicinity of a rolling contact. This investigation is crucial to predict the film formation under starved lubrication. Finally, they show the impact of oil wettability and oil volume on the lubricant supply in front of the contact.
