Abstract
In this work an approach to the two-dimensional steady-state rolling contact problem, with and without force transmission, is presented. The problem is solved by the combination of the Boundary Element Method with a formulation of the variational inequalities that govern the problem in the contact area, producing finally a mathematical programming problem. This formulation avoids the direct use of the contact constrains, but it drives to the minimisation of a non-differentiable function, being necessary the use of an specific numerical tool as the modified Newton's method.
