Abstract

The experimental method of caustics has been applied to rolling contact fatigue for determining the crack growth mechanism. Caustic images formed from stress fields under rolling contact with a crack are very complicated. Therefore, the theoretical background of the experimental caustic images formation has been studied through caustic image simulations. The simulati
