AbstractA tool has been developed for contact mechanics analysis of the wheel-rail contact. Using measurements of wheel and rail profiles as input, the tool is based on the finite element (FE) code ANSYS. Traditionally, two methods have been used to investigate the rail-wheel contact, namely Hertz's analytical method and Kalker's software program Contact. Both are based on the half-space assumption as well as on a linear-elastic material model. The half-space assumption puts geometrical… CONTINUE READING
