Plastic Deformation in Rolling Contact

  • K. L. Johnson
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 411)


It will have been evident from the analysis of rolling contact of elastic bodies that the contact zone is one of high stress concentration. With metallic solids, high loads would be expected to lead to plastic yielding and permanent deformation in the highly stressed zone, which is a precursor to failure by wear and fatigue. This group of four lectures will be devoted to the mechanics of inelastic deformation in rolling contact. Before considering rolling contact, the relevant basic principles of the theory of plasticity will be reviewed and applied to the stationary contact of curved bodies.
