Abstract

Analysis of two-dimensional and axisymmetric contact and friction problems using boundary element software O.A. Olukoko", A.A. Becker\ R.T. Fenner" "Department of Mechanical Engineering, Imperial College, UK ^Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Nottingham, UK ABSTRACT This paper presents the analysis of frictional contact problems using the boundary element software package, BEACON, in which three alternative approaches of enforcing the contact constraints have been developed and implemented. The first approach requires node-on-node matching along the interface while the other two allow free user-meshing of the interacting surfaces. In addition, the program incorporates several contact interface features such as frictional slipping, heat conduction, thermoelastic and clearance/interference fitting. Several examples are presented in which the results from the three approaches are shown to be in very good agreement with ea
