Contact modeling of rubber bodies is based either on viscoelasticity, nonlinear elasticity or adhesion. This paper advances a simple approach to the analysis of the contacts involving incompressible, nonlinear elastic bodies and reports experimental results on rubber to justify this approach. A good agreement is found between theory and experiments.
