Adhesion between a power-law indenter and a thin layer coated on a rigid substrate

Abstract: In the present paper we investigate indentation of a power-law axisymmetric rigid probe in adhesive contact with a "thin layer" laying on a rigid foundation for both frictionless unbounded and bounded compressible cases. The investigation relies on the "thin layer" assumption proposed by Johnson, i.e. the layer thickness being much smaller than the radius of the contact area, and it makes use of the previous solutions proposed by Jaffar and Barber for the adhesiveless case.
