Adhesion models: From single to multiple asperity contacts

journal contribution
posted on 07.12.2011 by Polina Prokopovich, Victor Starov
This review presents a summary of the current adhesion models available to date, between real rough surfaces, starting from single asperity models and expanding to multiple asperity contacts. The focus is made on multi-asperity contact interactions. Both van der Waals and contact mechanics approaches have been considered and relevant adhesion models are reviewed and discussed. The influence of the meniscus forces on adhesion has been considered, along with a summary of the various meniscus models. The effect of surface geometry, its topography and environmental conditions on meniscus action are also discussed along with its integration into multi-asperity adhesion models.
