AB - The through-thickness flow profile of a lubricant within an elastohydrodynamic contact is challenging to obtain due to its small thickness. Yet, this information is crucial to the accurate friction estimation of the tribological system. In this work, a novel fluorescence based technique has been developed to extract such information in situ. The local through-thickness flow profiles map within a tribological contact is obtained for the first time. The profiles obtained are position depends with slip boundary condition observed in high normal stress locations.
