DEVELOPMENT OF CORRUGATIONS ON SURFACES IN ROLLING CONTACT

The self-generation of corrugation on metal surfaces in rolling contact has been studied experimentally in a rolling contact disc machine and theoretically using a computer simulation. The system vibrates in the "contact resonance" mode excited by surface irregularities, and these vibrations may be severe enough to cause plastic indentation of the surface in one revolution which then amplifies the vibration in the next revolution.
