Numerical estimation of temperatures in simple sliding contacts

Numerical estimation of temperatures in simple sliding contacts

The performance of polymer-based materials in tribological applications is strongly influenced by the increase in temperature due to frictional heat. Therefore, detailed knowledge regarding the temperature distribution is crucial in the design of polymer-based tribological systems. However, a measurement of temperatures in the tribological interface is not feasible. This article describes two numerical approaches for calculating contact temperatures. The results are compared to those obtained by common analytical methods. Particular attention was focused on determining suitable boundary conditions for the finite element models.
