In the field of microsystems, adhesion force between the two
contact surfaces has an important contribution to the friction
losses. Two adhesion models have been presented and compared with
the classical Hertzian model: the Johnson–Kendall–Roberts (JKR)
model and the Derjaguin-Muller-Toporov (DMT) model. Using the above
adhesion mentioned models, friction coefficient in a micro balls
linear system has been analytical investigated.
