The rolling/sliding contact of a hard cylinder on a viscoelastic layer is re-examined. The one-dimensional Maxwell model, with the addition of a parallel spring, is used to model the normal stiffness of the viscoelastic layer A solution for the pressure distribution is presented. It is shown that the maximum tractive force that the cylinder can sustain before complete sliding is a function of the sense and magnitude of the rolling velocity. Two regimes of loading are considered - constant cylinder normal force and constant cylinder indentation.
