A solution to the elastohydrodynamic lubrication problem for the case of two rolling cylinders, at different speeds, is presented. The lubricant is assumed compressible throughout the region. The fourth-order Runge-Kutta method for the lubricant and an improved quadrature formula for the elastic calculations are used. Pressure and film-thickness profiles are presented for different rolling velocities. There is a good agreement with the experimental film thickness data, available in literature.
