Rolling and Sliding Contact

Chapter
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 250)

Abstract

So far, we have focussed mainly on contact problems in which the bodies are nominally stationary, except for the generally small motions associated with material deformation. However, in tribology, we often have to do with bodies in relative motion. This can be accomplished by sliding or rolling at the interface, or by a combination of the two.
