A Study on Stress Distribution Using Boundary Element Analysis Due to Surface Coating in Sliding Contact

경계요소법을 이용한 미끄럼 접촉을 받고 있는 코팅층의 응력분포에 관한 연구

  • Published : 2001.02.01


The present work examines the influence of surface coating on the temperature and the thermo-mechanical stress field produced by friction due to sliding contact. A two-dimensional transient model of a layered medium submitted to a moving heat flux is prsented. A solution technique based on the boundary element method employing the multiregion technique is utilized. Results are presented showing the influence of coating thickness, thermal properties, Peclet number, and mechanical properties. It has been shown that the mechanical properties and thickness of coating have a significant influence on the stress field, even for low temperature increase. The effects of the ratios of shear modulus become more important for low temperature increase than the effects of the ratios of other mechanical properties.
