When adhesive forces are taken into consideration, contacting asperities can still interact after intimate contact is broken. Current theories that predict the contact behavior of adhesive cylindrical asperities fail to capture the forces in this regime. In the present investigation, prior solutions for adhesive cylindrical asperities will be extended to include the condition where the asperities are not in physical contact but are still interacting through adhesive forces. In the extended results, relationships between the adhesive contact radius and the applied normal load will be developed and discussed with respect to the design of micro-scale components.
