Molecular dynamics study of contact mechanics: contact area and interfacial separation from small to full contact

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Yang, C. ; Persson, B. N. J. (2007)

We report a molecular dynamics study of the contact between a rigid solid with a randomly rough surface and an elastic block with a flat surface. We study the contact area and the interfacial separation from small contact (low load) to full contact (high load). For smal... View more
