Abstract

For real composite-steel surfaces in sliding contact an anisotropic numerical contact algorithm has been developed. The results were based on measured surface roughness data, under conditions of different fibre orientations relative to the sliding direction. The location of the real contact area at certain positions and also the sliding real contact areas could be predicted. These results can further be considered as preliminary data for contact temperature calculations and wear predictions. The experime
