This paper presents a numerical model of mechanical seal operating in mixed lubrication. It is based on a deterministic approach using realistic roughness description. This model is able to simulate the transition from mixed to hydrodynamic lubrication regimes corresponding to a minimum of the friction coefficient. Moreover it is able to work with non Gaussian surfaces and oriented surfaces.
