...Punit Kumar; M. M. Khonsari; Scott Bair The Eyring sinh law, which is the most widely used model to describe the shear-thinning behavior of elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) lubricants, fails to replicate the experimentally measured flow curves for shear-thinning lubricants. Interestingly...

...Punit Kumar; M. M. Khonsari An extensive set of full elastohydrodynamic lubrication point contact simulations has been used to develop correction factors to account for the effect of shear-thinning lubricant behavior on the central and minimum film thickness in circular contacts under pure rolling...

... colorimetric interferometry apparatus. Numerical simulations based on the measured rheology show very good agreement with the measurements of film thickness while the Newtonian prediction is up to twice the measurement. These results validate the use of realistic shear-thinning and pressure-viscosity models...
