A contact problem on partial interaction of faces of a variable thickness slot under the influence of temperature field
Keywords:variable thickness slot, temperature field, contact stick zone, slippage zone, contact stresses.
Temperature variations near the end of a variable thickness slot, comparable with elastic deformations are considered. A problem of equilibrium of a slot with partial-ly contacting faces under the action of external tensile loads, induced temperature field and forces on contacting surfaces of the slot is reduced to the problem of linear con-junction of analytic functions. Herewith it is assumed that on some part of the contact there arises stick of faces, and on the other part there may be slippage. Normal and tan-gential stresses, values of the sizes of the end contact zone are found.
