In this paper contact stress analysis of kiln tyre is presented. Contact stress plays key roll in pitting of tyre. In some cases, contact stress cause cracks in tyre. Highest value of contact stress is not on the surface but slightly below. Tyre is supported by rollers, contact pattern arrangement of tyre and roller is similar to two cylinders in contact and axes are parallel. Load on tyre is calculated considering kiln is simply supported. Contact stress analysis is performed using analytical and finite element simulation.
