The paper presents the analysis of tribological contacts between the tensioning guide and toothed chain generally used in the combustion engines. First, it is identified geometry which defines the contact between the tensioning guide and the toothed chain. To determine the pressure distribution in the contact area between tensioning guide and links is necessary to resolve the Reynolds equation. So, a general methodology is proposed for contacts of this type. Then, the mathematical modeling and numerical solution obtained are presented for a specific optimization problem of the tensioning guide and link contact.

Keywords— chain, pressure, tensioning guide, Reynolds.
