This work presents a combination of two dimensional (2D) and three dimensional (3D) finite element analysis (FEA) of structural and electrical contact between two nonconforming hemispheres at various vertical interferences. Items of particular interest include contact forces, current densities, and magnetic forces. The results are normalized to be applicable to micro and macro-scaled contact models. To test the validity of the analysis, the results are compared to another work focusing on contact between a hemisphere and rigid flat.
