High-order discontinuous Galerkin method for elastohydrodynamic lubrication line contact problems

By H. Lu, M. Berzins, C.E. Goodyer and P.K. Jimack


In this paper a high-order discontinuous Galerkin method is used to solve steady-state isothermal line contact elastohydrodynamic lubrication problems. This method is found to be stable across a wide range of loads and is shown to permit accurate solutions using just a small number of degrees of freedom provided suitable grids are used.\ud \ud A comparison is made between results obtained using this proposed method and those from a very large finite difference calculation in order to demonstrate excellent accuracy for a typical highly loaded test problem
