The paper discusses the difficulties in distinguishing between non-Newtonian lubricant models of the shear thinning and the limiting shear stress types commonly used for rolling sliding contacts in elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL). It is shown that the ability of the lubricant rheological model to replicate experimental heat partition behaviour is a much more discriminating test in determining the correct rheological behaviour than the ability to reproduce traction curves observed in experiment.
