Some machines elements such as hypoid gears and Wildhaber-Novikov gears works under conditions where the surface velocities are variously oriented, thus the entrainment and sliding velocities act at different directions. The influence of sliding velocity vector direction with respect to entrainment velocity vector has not been sufficiently determined yet. So, the aim of current experimental study is to investigate effect of slide-to-roll ratio and direction of sliding velocity vector with respect to entrainment velocity vector on elastohydrodynamic (EHD) film thickness using thin-film colorimetric interferometry in smooth glass-steel point contact.
