Owing to the significant effects of adhesive force and surface/membrane tension, the classical contact models often fail to describe the indentation responses of soft materials and biological systems. This work addresses the axisymmetric indentation of an elastic substrate with constant surface/membrane tension by a spherical, conical, or cylindrical flat indenter in the Johnson–Kendall–Roberts adhesive approximation. On the basis of non-adhesive contact solutions accounting for the surface/membrane tension effect, explicit expressions for the external load and depth with respect to the contact radius are derived for the adhesive contact cases, which act as the theoretical fundamental for the accurate analysis of indentation tests. Despite using different correction functions, the results for spherical indentation are consistent with the solution of previous studies. It is found that the role of surface/membrane tension in the adhesive contact behavior is controlled by a dimensionless parameter. As the parameter gets larger, the pull-off force and the contact size at zero-external load for spherical and conical indentations are smaller, whereas the pull-off force for cylindrical flat indentation is higher.
