In this paper, an analytical model for predicting the contact stress and wear distribution between a textured surface and a compliant flat is presented. The modeling formulation is based upon a two-dimensional stress analysis of the flat, and it allows the contact stress distribution to be found from the distribution of the sample deflection into the flat surface. The wear evolution was calculated from the contact stress.
