An Analysis of Elastic Rough Contact Models 

Xu, Yang (2012-07-27)
The problem of elastic contact between one nominally flat rough surface and one rigid flat is studied. A variety of contact models have been applied to this problem since the pioneering work of Archard in 1956. Those contact ...

Statistical Models of Nominally Flat Rough Surface Contact 

Xu, Yang (2017-12-01)
In this dissertation, the linear elastic contact between a nominally-flat rough surface and a rigid flat is studied analytically and numerically. When the roughness is excluded from the surface, the corresponding contact ...
