In tribological contact, frictional heating may lead to temperature rise, which in turn may result in thermal displacement of the contacting bodies. The quantification of these effects is desirable in order to more accurately predict wear and failure of contacting surfaces. The change in temperature at a contact area may be attributed to the combined effects of frictional heating and convective cooling. This paper presents a transient, three-dimensional solution for the normal surface displacement of an elastic half-space due to an arbitrarily distributed, moving heat source and surface convection.
