This work presents the results from a three dimensional (3D) finite element analysis (FEA) of an elastic-plastic asperity contact model for two spherical bodies sliding across each other with various preset vertical interferences. Stresses, forces, contact areas, deformations, and net energy loss are presented for steel-on-steel and aluminum-on-copper contact.
