A new numerical analysis method for elastic adhesive contact mechanics between a sphere and a flat with a sub-nanometer roughness is presented. In contrast to conventional theories, the elastic deformations of both contacting asperities and mean height surface and Lennard-Jones (LJ) surface forces of both contacting asperities and all rough surfaces including valley areas are taken into account New adhesive force of contacting asperity is used from asperity contact analysis. Calculated results for head-disk asperity contact with current low roughness are shown in comparison with conventional theories. The relationship among present theory, mean height surface theory and perfectly smooth surface theory is discussed.
