Paper on arXiv: Normal contact stiffness

Chongpu Zhai, Sébastien Bevand, Yixiang Gan, Dorian Hanaor, Gwénaëlle Proust, Bruno Guelorget, Delphine Retraint (2014) Measurement of normal contact stiffness of fractal rough surfaces. We investigate the effects of roughness and fractality on the normal contact stiffness of rough surfaces. Samples of isotropically roughened aluminium surfaces are considered. The roughness and fractal dimension were altered […]
