... on the contact load, and the contact stiffness will be an integral whose integrand is an implicit expression. The fractal dimension and the fractal roughness are obtained by the measurement of the surface profile to calculate the theoretical contact stiffness. The measurement of deformation is conducted...

... that are too stiff for the picoindenter transducer. To exemplify, we assume a representative shear modulus of 100 GPa for a metallic alloy to be tested and a sufficiently large contact radius, say 1 µ m to resolve under SEM. Those values yield tangential contact stiffnesses of about K t = 8 G...

... contact of rough surfaces based on ubiquitiform theory. The results show that the normal contact stiffness of a rough surface increases as the normal load rises. If the ubiquitiformal complexity of a rough surface increases or the lower bound to scale invariance of a rough surface decreases, the normal...

... the number of asperities on 2D surfaces. The contact stiffness on a unit length of a 1D outline and that on a unit area of 2D surfaces are presented based on a formula for determining the number of asperities. The relationship between macro parameters, such as contact stiffness and micro parameters...

... for this observation and the scatter that may occur for surfaces of nominally similar roughness. The suitability of these parameters for predicting the contact behavior of rough surfaces is also considered. The analyses have shown that the tangential contact stiffness and normal contact stiffness have identical...

Under all operating conditions, the prediction of fluid stiffness was found to be much greater than the solid contact stiffness. The total stiffness predicted by the model showed good agreement...

... models are typically used. A critical element of these models is the contact stiffness and damping arising from the interfacial interaction between the slider and the disk. In this paper, we review different models for predicting contact stiffness based on roughness and layered media and then we report...
