Dynamical Descriptions of Elastic Bodies -- Contact Model -- Oscillators with Elastic Contact and Friction -- Friction Damping of Elastic Multibody Systems -- Rolling Contact -- Conclusion.
The aim of this book is to describe an efficient procedure to model dynamical contact problems with friction. This procedure is applied to different practical problems and verified by experiments. Friction contacts are used to transmit forces or to dissipate energy. Examples for dynamical engineering systems with friction are brakes, machine tools, motors, turbines, bearings or wheel-rail systems. A better understanding of friction phenomena result in improvements like the reduction of noise and maintenance costs, increased life time of machines and improved energy efficiency. Dependent on the features of the dynamic system with friction contacts, different contact models and solution methods like multi-scaling methods are developed and applied.
