The solution to the EHL line contact problem has been computed by building a multigrid solver. There are two types of relaxation schemes used in the solver, a Gauss -Seidel scheme and a combination of the Gauss- Seidel scheme and the Distributive Jacobi scheme. The differences in the convergence and residual norm values for each of the schemes is discussed.
