Rolling Contact Fatigue

J Nielsen in Wheel–Rail Interface Handbook 2009 8 2 2 Discrete wheel tread defects – rolling contact fatigue Rolling contact fatigue (RCF) defects can be distinguished by whether the cracks are initiated at the surface or at some millimetres below the surface 45 The surface-initiated cracks are often initiated due to repeated cyclic tangential loading of the wheel–rail contact

Rolling Contact Fatigue of Rails: what remains to be done?

2012-6-26Rolling contact fatigue of rails The stress concentration feature which causes initiation of RCF cracks is the contact between the wheel and the rail Conditions under the contact patch are always severe and the yield stress of the rail steel is always exceeded on at least a microscale due to the surface roughness of the wheel and the rail It

A Study on Contact Fatigue Mechanisms

2005-3-17A mechanism for rolling contact fatigue based on tensile stresses from axi-symmetric asperity contacts is reviewed and supported by the experimental findings The results have also led to the understanding that there are two different mechanisms responsible for initiation of surface and sub-surface contact fatigue First however the rolling

Fatigue (material)

2020-8-17In materials science fatigue is the weakening of a material caused by cyclic loading that results in progressive and localized structural damage and the growth of cracks Once a fatigue crack has initiated each loading cycle will grow the crack a small amount typically producing striations on some parts of the fracture surface The crack will continue to grow until it reaches a critical

Rolling Contact Fatigue of Surface Densified PM Gears

The previously used rolling contact fatigue test methods have used sliding values of 24 to 43 percent Rolling contact fatigue durability is reduced in the presence of sliding forces because the magnitude of the surface shear stress is increased and the peak shear stress moves toward the surface which eases fracture initiation [16 26 49]
