Electroadhesive sphere-flat contact problem

The electroadhesive contact between a conductive sphere with a rigid substrate, both coated with an electrically insulating layer is studied, by adopting two solution strategies: (i) a DMT approximation and (ii) an iterative finite element model which accounts for the effect of the electroadhesive tractions on the deformation of the elastic solids. The contact problem is solved by varying the applied voltage and the elastic modulus of the coating layer.
