Society of tribology and lubrication engineers announced Contact Mechanics Challenge. Dr. Martin Müser initiated a competition in calculation of a real contact area. He has already results of his own calculation and challenges other groups to join and compare the results. As an outcome, there will be a paper discussing existing methods for contact simulation. Our tribology group in Twente will take part in it. It’s time to quote Barney Stinson: challenge accepted!
Description of the problem can be found at:
and the deadline for the submission is May 1, 2016.
