SURVEY OF WHEEL-RAIL ROLLING CONTACT THEORY

This paper describes the theory of frictional rolling contact as far as it is significant for the wheel-rail system. It is divided into two parts. The first part, mostly non-mathematical, contains a historical survey from the times of Carter and Fromm (1926) to the present day, in which all aspects of rolling contact theory are discussed. Included are a quantitative account of the results of Hertz theory, and a table of the creepage and spin coefficients. The second part gives a present day account of the simplified theory, and of the exact linear and non-linear theory.
