Talk:Frictional contact mechanics
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
|It is requested that a diagram or diagrams be included in this article to improve its quality. Specific illustrations, plots or diagrams can be requested at the Graphic Lab.
For more information, refer to discussion on this page and/or the listing at Wikipedia:Requested images.
The page needs further extension. Several ideas are as follows:
- add pictures that illustrate the main ideas, particularly: the stick and slip areas, the traction distribution for shifting (Cattaneo) and steady rolling (Carter) solutions.
- add different contact problems: e.g. transmission belt on a pulley.
- add information on contact problems with lubrication.
- add information on micro-scale problems. For instance: the detailed structure of a surface layer of a railway wheel: bulk material, smaller grains near the surface, oxide layer, contaminants layer, asperities.
