The contact model for rough surfaces with power-law axisymmetric asperities in the presence of adhesion is developed. The extended JKR adhesive contact model for power-law axisymmetric asperities, denoted as JKR-n, developed by Zheng and Yu (2007,“Using the Dugdale Approximation to Match a Specific Interaction in the Adhesive Contact of Elastic Objects,” J. Colloid Interface Sci., 310, pp. 27–34) is utilized to investigate the adhesive contact of rough surfaces. The JKR-n adhesive contact model generalizes the most adopted JKR model for spherical objects of n = 2. This work compares the effect of surface roughness on the adhesion force for rough surfaces with various power-law axisymmetric asperities. It is found that shapes of the asperities influence the pull-off forces greatly during the separation of rough surfaces. A general adhesion parameter that includes the shape index of asperities is proposed, and it can be used to characterize the adhesion performance of rough surfaces.
