A Comparison Between Variational Inequality and Elrod-Adams Simulations of Reynolds Flow with Cavitation
Despite considerable research related to lubrication with cavitation, significant simulation results and relative comparisons remain. To accomplish that, we make use of the finite element method which is seen as a better method to simulate lubrication with cavitation models such as the variational inequality model and the Elrod-Adams model. Different techniques are used during the process of resolution by the finite element method. A penalty method is used for the variational model and an iterative method is used for the Elrod-Adams model. Finally, some simulation results are presented to show dierent aspects of the two models.
