Friction-induced heat generation between two particles
Department of Chemical and Process Engineering, University of Surrey, United Kingdom
Published online: 7 June 2021
Friction-induced heat generation, dissipation and the associated rise in temperature are still an intrinsic problem in many fields dealing with granular materials. This work presents preliminary attempts of modelling heat generation and estimating the contact flash temperatures with the use of a theoretical model. To check the robustness of this theoretical model simulations were run in parallel with Finite element method. The maximum contact temperatures obtained from the theoretical model show a good agreement with FEM results. The promising results imply that the simple theoretical model can be used accurately to predict heat generation in granular materials.
