Overview of Contact Analysis

  • Susumu Takahashi
Part of the Lecture Notes in Engineering book series (LNENG, volume 67)


Various techniques have been developed to study contact analysis. The main three techniques are as follows:
  1. i)

    Experimental Approach

  2. ii)

    Analytical Approach

  3. iii)

    Numerical Approach

The experimental and analytical approaches have been developed at the early stages of contact analysis. The numerical approach instead has developed rapidly during the last three decades and it has been strongly influenced by the advent of digital computers.
