Analysis of incomplete and complete contacts in sliding and partial slip

Abstract:

Fretting fatigue is a type of contact fatigue which causes premature failure in a number of engineering assemblies subjected to vibration or other forms of cyclic loading. It is concerned with the nucleation of cracks due to oscillatory micro slip between contacting bodies. Therefore, a detailed knowledge of the interface conditions and the means of quantifying crack nucleation are very important, and will be the ultimate goal of this thesis. The analysis of an incomplete contact (Herzian con...
