Abstract

The slipping between the rail and the wheel during steady-state rolling contact is numerically quantified in this paper. The wheel/rail rolling contact problem is simulated by using the steady-state transport analysis technique. The influence of different conditions on the slipping is investigated systematically. According to wear theories, sliding wear depends not only on contact pressure but also on sliding distance between the contact surfaces. The results obtained from this analysis can gain a new insight into the wear occurring on the rail.
