Analysis and Research on Fractal Model of Normal Contact Stiffness of Joint Interfaces
Through the analysis and research on three fractal models of normal contact stiffness of joint interfaces, the differences between them can be found. Furthermore, numerical simulation was carried out to obtain the complicated nonlinear relations between normal contact stiffness and the normal load. The results show that the normal contact stiffness increases with the normal load, decreases with G but complicatedly varies with D. According to different fractal dimension, we can chose an appropriate one among the three fractal models of normal contact stiffness of joint interfaces when describing normal contact stiffness of joint interfaces.
