  1. 1. Numerical simulation of thermomechanically coupled transient rolling contact - An arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian approach

    Author : Andreas Draganis; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermomechanical coupling; finite element method; transient analysis; arbitrary Lagrangian--Eulerian; rolling contact; frictional contact;

    Abstract : Numerical simulation of rolling contact serves as an important complement to laboratory and full-scale testing in the endeavour to further the understanding of related physical mechanisms, e.g. the influence of friction on the rolling motion, the thermomechanical interaction, damage phenomena and related modes of failure.

  2. 2. Thermal impact on rolling contact fatigue of railway wheels

    Author : Sara Caprioli; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Railway wheels; Thermomechanical finite element analysis; Frictional rolling contact; Thermal fracture; Tread braking; Rolling contact fatigue;

    Abstract : Rolling contact fatigue (RCF) is a very common and costly damage mechanism for rails and wheels. This thesis investigates the influence of combined thermal and mechanical loading on RCF of railway wheels on the basis of numerical predictions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Time-domain modelling of curve squeal: a fast model for one- and two-point wheel/rail contact

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Ivan Zenzerovic; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; two-point contact; non-Hertzian contact; dynamics coupling; rolling contact; tangential point-contact model; Curve squeal; time domain; frictional instability;

    Abstract : Curve squeal is a type of railway noise that may arise when a railway vehicle negotiates a relatively tight curve. A single frequency, corresponding to a wheel mode, dominates the radiated sound, which makes squeal a very tonal noise. READ MORE

  4. 4. Engineering model for curve squeal formulated in the time domain

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Ivan Zenzerovic; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; tangential point-contact model; time domain; frictional instability; Curve squeal; rolling contact; non- Hertzian contact;

    Abstract : Curve squeal is a type of railway noise that may arise when a railway vehicle negotiates a relatively tight curve. Squeal is common in curves of a radius lower than 200 meters. A single frequency dominates the radiated sound, which makes squeal a very tonal noise. READ MORE

  5. 5. Squat defects and rolling contact fatigue clusters - Numerical investigations of rail and wheel deterioration mechanisms

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Robin Andersson; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; rail surface irregularities; rolling contact fatigue clusters; dynamic vehicle–track interaction; rolling contact fatigue; studs; squats; fracture mechanics;

    Abstract : Squat defects, a type of localised rolling contact fatigue damage appearing on rail surfaces with rail break as an ultimate consequence, have concerned infrastructure managers for the last couple of decades. In recent years similar types of defects—so-called studs—that are visually resembling squats, have started to appear. READ MORE
