The Simplified Theory of Contact
- 297 Downloads
The theory of elasticity is based on a linear relationship between stresses and strains, see Appendix A. Consequently, the surface displacement of a body at a certain point depends linearly on the surface tractions at all points of the surface, in the manner of Eq. (1.37) (Ch. 1). In the simplified theory of rolling contact, introduced by Kalker in 1973, this complicated relation is replaced by the assumption that the surface displacement at a point x depends linearly on the surface traction at the same point x only.
