Edge conditions under a bearing load : use of asymptotic solutions
- This short paper focuses on the nature of the tractions at edge of a complete contact in the form of a sharp wedge on a flat surface. The possible states of stress, slip and separation are dependent on the wedge angle and the coefficient of friction. The requirement of remote loading is only that it holds the parts together. The choice of this feature may thus have consequences for the integrity of some components.
