The strive for improved efficiency of machine components implies increasingly severe operating conditions for the lubricated non-conformal surfaces present in, for example, bearings and gears. In this work, such contacts are studied in time through numerical simulations with consideration of lubricant flow, elasticity, thermal effects, and non-Newtonian rheology. The results provide insights into how lubricant shear and thermal effects influence the predominant lubricating mechanisms for both wavy surfaces and surface features that overtake within the lubricated contact.
