A full numerical solution for the thermal EHL problem in circular contact formed by steel-glass conjunctions with slide-roll ratios larger than 2 has been carried out. An anomalous film profile, which is similar to that reported by Kaneta et al. (1996), has been obtained. The numerical results by the authors, involving three basic kinds of film profiles, the kinematic conditions for the formation of dimples, and the variations of dimples and traction behavior with operating conditions, have been carefully compared with the experiments by Kaneta et al., and provided a sound theoretical evidence of the dimple phenomena under steady-state conditions. The present study indicates that the temperature-viscosity-wedge effect seems to be an essential mechanism for the dimple phenomena.
