Assessment of Thermomechanical Couplings in Tribological Surface Transformations: Application to the Irreversible Near-Surface Solid-Solid Phase Transformations
Thermomechanical loading applied (on the left end of the bar, ). Note that the function (resp. ), which progresses linearly with time, is given by a solid line with K in time s (resp. a dashed line with under three different loads MPa).
