In sliding friction experiments, performed with lubricated concentrated contacts macroscopically operating in the lubricants’ liquid-state regime, the existence of micro-EHL has been shown. With the measuring method used, the lubricants’ limiting shear stress τ1 or the ratio of the limiting shear stress with pressure, τ1/p, can easily be obtained.
