Contact Mechanics. The Boundary Element Method. Fretting. Newton Method.


Fretting occurs whenever the interface between components is subjected to a variable load, since it creates a finite relative tangential displacement over at least part of the contact zone. This phenomena has been the focus of many researches for being one of the main causes of mechanical failure. Additionally, fretting has been recognized as one of the costliest sources of in-service damage relate to high cycle fatigue (HCF) in many applications.
