The paper presents experimental findings on a rolling contact apparatus and discusses a potential approach to improve the adhesion limits at high speeds by controlling the microvibrations in the contact area. Experiments were performed on the model rolling contact apparatus. The test wheel is driven by the 10-in. diam simulated track wheel. A braking torque can be applied to the test wheel by an air-brake through a timing belt pulley.
