AbstractProblems in tribology and contact mechanics are becoming increasingly amenable to solution through models and simulation. But in application to the wheel/rail contact, there remain a number of very important features for which either gross simplifications or a lack of understanding or ability severely limits the success of those efforts. Examples include models of friction and material response (including damage functions). This paper examines a rather eclectic mix of wheel/rail factors with the goal of encouraging researchers to begin tackling and eradicating some of the bigger problem areas that remain in wheel-rail interaction modeling and to consider more rigorous implementation of real world conditions in simulations.
