The interaction between microscopically rough surfaces and hydrodynamic thin film lubrication is investigated under the assumption of finite deformations. Within a coupled micro-macro analysis setting, the influence of roughness onto the macroscopic scale is determined using FE 2-type homogenization techniques to reduce the overall computational cost. Exact to within a separation of scales assumption, a computationally efficient two-phase micromechanical test is proposed to identify the macroscopic interface fluid flux from a lubrication analysis performed on the deformed configuration of a representative surface element. Parameter studies show a strong influence of both roughness and surface deformation on the macroscopic response for isotropic and anisotropic surfacial microstructures. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.
