Complete numerical solutions are obtained for the steady-state line contact thermal elastohydrodynamic lubrication (TEHL) problems. The contact surfaces are arranged to run in opposite directions. The slide-roll ratios are allowed to be as high as infinity. The new theory reveals that the characteristics of the high slide-roll contacts are significantly different from those of the low slide-roll contacts. The unusual zero-entrainment films discovered by Dyson and Wilson and the abnormal surface-dimple phenomena observed by Kaneta et al. are explained.
