CONTACT PHENOMENA. I: STRESSES, DEFLECTIONS AND CONTACT DIMENSIONS FOR NORMALLY-LOADED UNLUBRICATED ELASTIC COMPONENTS

The item deals with the stresses and deflections of contacting bodies. The item gives data for the contact dimensions, normal approach, delta, surface and sub-surface stresses (for points on the axis of symmetry) together with the depth at which the maximum shear occurs, for dry, normally-loaded elastic bodies. Typical applications include civil, structural, machine tool, and automobile engineering, mechanical handling and mining equipment, printing, packaging, and textile machinery, and other fields of engineering involving concentrated contacts.
