Abstract

A compliance operator, £, is often utilized to evaluate elastic deformation in the simulation of transient and steady state elastohydrodynamic lubrication of conformal-contact systems. The values of the compliance operator represent the elastic responses of all nodes when only one node is under a unit load. The accuracy of compliance operator values, computational cost, and storage size are important issues. Based on our previous study on steady-state conformal-contact elastohydrodynamic lubrication systems, an advanced method of selective-fine-mesh with selective storage is suggested, and a special technique of combined selective-fine-mesh with selective storage mapping is proposed. These two techniques enable an efficient elasticity procedure for the simulation of transient conformal-contact elastohydrodynamic lubrication systems.
