...R. S. Dwyer-Joyce; C. Yao; J. Zhang; R. Lewis; B. W. Drinkwater Failure of a wheel-rail contact is usually by wear or fatigue of either component. Both mechanisms depend on the state of stress, which in turn depends on size and location of the contact patch. In this work, the feasibility...

...M. B. Marshall; R. Lewis; R. S. Dwyer-Joyce; U. Olofsson; S. Björklund The contact area and pressure distribution in a wheel/rail contact is essential information required in any fatigue or wear calculations to determine design life, re-grinding, and maintenance schedules. As wheel or rail wear...

...Zefeng Wen; Xuesong Jin; Yanyao Jiang A finite element analysis with the implementation of an advanced cyclic plasticity theory was conducted to study the elastic-plastic deformation under the nonsteady state rolling contact between a wheel and a rail. The consideration of nonsteady state rolling...
