A three-dimensional fusion prediction model for fractal rough surfaces in the sliding contact process
Purpose ‐ The purpose of this manuscript is to analyze the fusion micro-zone generated by typical rough surfaces and investigate the factors of thermal effects on the tribological performance of surface asperities and its results verified by the experiment. Design/methodology/approach ‐ A three-dimensional fractal rough surfaces sliding contact model has been developed, which takes into account temperature rise and distribution. The finite-element method, Green's function method, thermal conduct theory and contact mechanics are used as the solution methods. Findings ‐ The results yield insights into the effects of the sliding velocity, thermal properties of the material, normal load and surface roughness on the temperature rise of the sliding contact surface. It allows the specification of working conductions' properties to reduce fusion. Originality/value ‐ The model is developed and described by using the features of the contact between one flat surface and one rough surface with varied topographies. It can be easily applied for solving the sliding contact problems with different working conditions and specified for designing the surface accuracy in the severe working condition.
