Hemivariational Inequalities: Applications in Mechanics and Engineering

The purpose of the current publication is the formula, mathematical examine and numerical therapy of static and dynamic difficulties in mechanics and engineering sciences regarding nonconvex and nonsmooth power features, or nonmonotone and multivalued stress-strain legislation. Such difficulties result in a brand new form of variational kinds, the hemivariational inequalities, which additionally bring about multivalued differential or crucial equations.

The longitudinal tire force (circumferential force) results from the friction coefficient, the wheel load as well as from the wheel load factor and the slip factor. It is possible to define variable friction coefficients along the driving profile when different road conditions are considered [1]. 1 Mathematical Modeling of the Configuration Used in the Simulation Process 45 The wheel component also includes a detailed rolling resistance. This model describes the rolling resistance of the tire depending on the tire inflation pressure, load, translation speed, the ambient temperature and the time [1].

The Clutch contains a model for a friction clutch as it is used in cars with manual gearboxes. In this case the clutch is controlled by the driver via the cockpit [1]. For the transmission of maximum torque from the clutch to be without slip during the entire duration of functioning, it is necessary for the clutch friction torque Ma to be greater than the maximum torque of the engine. 3 Equations of the Gearbox Element Gear transmissions featuring several fixed ratios can maintain a correspondence between the respective performance curves for engine and vehicle.
