In this supplementary materials section, we provide (i) additional information on the numerical simulations of the main work, (ii) the derivation of all prefactors in the analytical theory, and (iii) unpublished experiments of the contact stiffness of a polymer pressed against a rough substrate.

The effect of finite roughness size and bulk thickness on the prediction of rubber friction and contact mechanics

We present the numerical results for the viscoelastic and adhesive contribution to rubber friction for a tread rubber sliding on a hard solid with a randomly rough surface. In particular, the effect

Contact Mechanics for Randomly Rough Surfaces: On the Validity of the Method of Reduction of Dimensionality

Recently, a 1D mapping procedure has been applied to many contact mechanics problems between randomly rough surfaces. I present a simple “back-of-the-envelope” argument to show that this theory fails

Comment on “Contact Mechanics for Randomly Rough Surfaces: On the Validity of the Method of Reduction of Dimensionality” by Bo Persson in Tribology Letters

In a recent paper, Persson (Tribol Lett, 2015. doi:10.1007/s11249-015-0498-1) has criticized the validity of the method of dimensionality reduction in contact mechanics. Attempts to determine the
