Abstract

In this paper, a novel ultrasonic measurement technique for non-invasively characterising dynamic contacts is introduced. A Nitrile ball in contact with a Perspex plate was investigated by applying two ultrasound scanning approaches respectively for static and dynamic (rolling and sliding) cases. Contact sizes and contact pressure distributions have been measured over different loads.
