Abstract : A generalised form of Reynolds equation for two symmetrical surfaces is derived considering velocity-slip at the bearing surfaces. This equation is applied to study the effects of velocity-slip for the lubrication of roller bearings under lightly loaded conditions. Expressions for the point of cavitation, load capacities, and coefficient of friction obtained are also studied theoretically for various parameters.
