Two axi-symmetrical contact problems with the steady-state frictional heating

Alexander Yevtushenko, Roman Kultchytsky-Zhyhailo
We study two axi-symmetrical contact problems for a sliding/rotating sphere on an elastic half space. The effect of frictional heating is considered. The problems are reduced to Fredholm integral equations of the second kind which are solved numerically. Distributions of the contact pressure and temperature are shown in terms of input parameters.
