The Newtonian thermal EHL analyses of point contacts with two-sided surface roughness have been performed under pure rolling, sliding/rolling and simple sliding conditions. Thermal results are compared with isothermal ones. It has been found that the sliding motion produces high temperature rise and reduces the film thickness greatly. The influence of amplitude and wavelength of the surface roughness on variation of tribo-characteristics of oil film is also discussed.
