On the application of the Method of Dimensionality Reduction to two-dimensional contacts.
The conventional formulation of the Method of Dimensionality Reduction (MDR) in contact mechanics is only applicable two "point contacts", that is to contacts of two unbounded three-dimensional bodies over final contact area. We analyze here if it is possible to find an at least approximate formulation of the MDR for "line contacts", that is contacts which contact area is unbounded in one direction. In this case the problem can be formulated as contact of two two-dimensional half-"spaces".

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform.
