In the present work we have given an account of the three-dimensional frictional rolling problem in the theory of elasticity. Four theories stand out: the linear theory which is at the root of many analyses, the theory of Shen-Hedrick-Elkins, important for rail vehicle dynamics, the simplified theory with the FASTSIM algorithm, and the variational theory based on virtual work, on which are built the DUVOROL and CONTACT programs.
