Grahic Jump Location
A moving half-space with an irregularly distributed heat source. The heat source applied on the surface (x1,x2,0) causes temperature rise at (ξ123) all over the body, and the temperature field simultaneously lead to the normal displacement in the surface (x1,x2,0)
Grahic Jump Location
(a) The pressure distribution obtained from a counterformal contact analysis 21 (normalized by a pressure limit of 1.8GPa); and (b) the elastic displacement (1000 u3) (maximum: 2.67e-3).
Grahic Jump Location
Thermoelastic displacements (−1000 u3). The transverse heat source is corresponding to the pressure distribution shown in Fig. 2(a)
Grahic Jump Location
Thermoelastic displacements (−1000 u3). The heat source has a longitudinal irregular distribution.
Grahic Jump Location
The intermittent pressure distribution normalized by the pressure limit of 1.8GPa. (r=0.07)
Grahic Jump Location
Thermoelastic displacements (−1000 u3). The intermittent heat source is determined by the pressure in Fig. 5.
