The knowledge of the entraining velocity is necessary for the investigation of lubricated contacts. The entraining velocity is the average of the surface velocities of the two bodies in contact relative to the contact itself; its estimation can be actually not always immediate. In this work the general case of two pairing cylindrical surfaces in planar relative motion is analyzed from a kinematical point of view. Formulas for the evaluation of the entraining velocity are presented that are directly applicable to any case of connected members of a mechanism. The physical meaning of the terms of the proposed formulas is also briefly investigated from a lubrication point of view.
