Abstract

The two-dimensional thermoelastic contact problem of a rolling, rigid cylinder on an elastic half space containing a surface-breaking crack is solved using complex variable techniques. The effects of heat generation and friction between the cylinder and half space and of friction and heat transfer on the faces of the crack are considered. The problem is reduced to a pair of singular integral equations which are solved numerically. Numerical results are obtained when the loading is a Hertzian distributed heat input. By consideration of combinations of parameters, stress intensity factors for which the crack is likely to grow are shown.
