The program was developed in order to enable investigations of how surface roughness relates to rolling contact fatigue. The goal of the program was only to enable simulations of artificial asperities, indents, and general rough surfaces, not to write a program that would be easy to use nor to be the fastest or the most robust one. However, since the code is capable of simulating time-dependent thermal elastohydrodynamic contacts including different surface roughness’s it might be of use for others. The code is therefore distributed as an open-source code free to use for anyone. The author does not take any responsibility for the code. Some example files are included in order for future uses to get started easier and to show the validity of the code.
