Over the past few years, a number of implicit/explicit finite element models have been introduced for the purpose of tackling the problems of wheel-rail interaction. Yet, most of those finite element models encounter common numerical difficulties. For instance, initial gaps/penetrations between two contact bodies, which easily occur when realistic wheel-rail profiles are accounted for, would trigger the problems of divergence in implicit finite element simulations. Also, redundant, insufficient… CONTINUE READING
