The study reported in this paper deals with the development of a generalized and efficient computer-based model for parametric evaluation of heat partition and transient temperatures in dry and lubricated layered concentrated contacts. The program utilizes finite differences with the alternating direction implicit method. It is capable of treating this general class of problems provided that the heat generation distribution and the layer properties and thicknesses are known.
