Synopsis

Contact Mechanics by K. L. Johnson

This treatise is concerned with the stresses and deformation of solid bodies in contact with each other, along curved surfaces which touch initially at a point or along a line. Examples are a railway wheel and rail, or a pair of gear wheel teeth. Professor Johnson first reviews the development of the theory of contact stresses since the problem was originally addressed by H. Hertz in 1882. Next he discusses the influence of friction and the topographical roughness of surfaces, and this is incorporated into the theory of contact mechanics. An important feature is the treatment of bodies which deform plastically or viscoelastically. In addition to stationary contact, an appreciable section of the book is concerned with bodies which are in sliding or rolling contact, or which collide.

Reviews

'There is no doubt that this text will be an enduring and definitive volume on contact mechanics ... The book is a unique introduction to the subject and its many carefully selected references provide the basis for a continuing education.'
B. J. Briscoe, Tribology International

'This is the first comprehensive book of its kind and it can be commended both to undergraduates with a particular interest in contact mechanics and to post-graduate workers whose special interests lie in the field of frictional contact, surface deformation and wear.'
J. Gittus, International Journal of Structural Mechanics and Materials Science
