In this paper an analysis of the Elastohydrodynamic lubricated circular contact through a hybrid technique is presented. In particular the attention is focused on the pressure distribution calculation. A versatile code has been developed, able to evaluate the pressure distribution starting from 3-D film thickness maps obtained from the analysis of the interferometric images. The code is developed in C++ and is based on Multigrid Technique. This hybrid technique has a basic advantage with respect to the full numerical approach: the pressure is obtained without making any assumption about the lubricant itself. The main disadvantage of the method is that high resolution of the interferometric images is requested.
