||An efficient methodology is proposed for the analysis of frictionless contact between rough surfaces. The surface is described by parabolic asperities which deform according to Hertz Theory. The problem is solved considering interactions between elliptic contact zones. Such analysis provides interface laws that are incorporated into a macroscopic numerical model where contact surfaces are flat. This operation is done by means of Love solution for elastic half spaces and the penalty method.
A numerical example of this multiscale method is presented to show its robustness. In comparison with a purely numerical model where roughness is explicitly described, the proposed strategy provides good results and saves a considerable amount of time.
