Expressions for the hydrodynamic friction forces between two rigid bodies each having two principal radii of curvature have been found using an exponential pressure-viscosity assumptions. The rolling friction forces are presented graphically in terms of a dimensionless meniscus distance. These formulas are applicable to the computation of the rolling friction in a ball-race contact and in a ball-cage contact with a variable degree of starvation. In particular, the rolling friction forces can be predicted as a function of the usual speed-viscosity parameter and the thickness of the inlet fluid layer far upstream of the inlet.
