Line contact problems, such as those seen in spur gears and cam-roller follower systems, are often simplified with the plane-strain assumption and thus modeled by twodimensional equations. However, in order to address the effects of roughness and textured surfaces, three-dimensional modeling is necessary. The challenge arises when the contact domain is… (More)
