It will be shown that the hydrodynamic and elasticity equations in elastohydrodynamic lubrication can be coupled to one single integral equation of the following form:
H(x)=f(x)
TabK(x,ξ)F{H(ξ)}dξ
in which f(x) and K(x, ξ) are both known analytic functions inside [a, b], and F(H) is in general a nonlinear function of the dimensionless film thickness. A numerical solution of this integral equation for constant viscosity is presented for a large range of loading conditions.
