Modeling Abrasion Resistant Materials by Modeling Large Sliding Frictional Contact
— In this paper, our goal is to simulate abrasion resistance material. We therefore need a robust algorithm to model this phenomenon which is a kind of large frictional contact problem. In order to reach to our aim, we have proposed a new method to impose contact constraints in eXtended Finite Element Method (XFEM) framework. In this algorithm, we have modeled large sliding contact problems by using the Node To Segment (NTS) concept. Furthermore, friction between two sliding interface has been modeled based on the Coulomb friction law. In addition, the penalty method which is the most convenient way of imposing non-penetration constraints has been employed. In our algorithm, new Lagrangian shape functions have been used to solve the problems of the conventional Heaviside enrichment function. Finally, a numerical simulation has been delivered to prove the accuracy and capability of our new algorithm.
