In this section, we first define average roughness parameters followed by statistical analyses and fractal characterization of surface roughness that are of importance in contact problems. Emphasis is placed on random, isotropic surfaces that follow a Gaussian distribution. 1 Amplitude Parameters Surface roughness most commonly refers to the variations in the height of the surface relative to a reference plane. 3 Schematic of a surface profile z(x). line profiles (surface maps). It is usually characterized by one of the two statistical height descriptors advocated by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Standardization Organization (ISO) (Anonymous, 1975, 1985).

This count N0 is rarely used. A third parameter – mean peak spacing (A R ) is the average distance between measured peaks. This parameter is merely equal to 1/N p . Other spacial parameters rarely used are the mean slope and mean curvature which are the first and second derivative of the profile/surface, respectively. 12) with P(−∞) = 0 and P(∞) = 1. 13a) where the resulting function p(z) is called the probability density function (PDF). 13c) h1 Furthermore, the total area under the probability density function must be unity; that is, it is certain that the value of z at any x must fall somewhere between plus and minus infinity or z max and z min .

The chi-square test (Siegel, 1956) can also be used to determine how well the given distribution matches a Gaussian distribution. , 1986). For the sake of mathematical simplicity in some analyses, sometimes an exponential distribution is used instead of the Gaussian distribution. 16b) In this function, m is the minimal value of the variable. 2 Moments of Amplitude Probability Functions The shape of the probability density function offers useful information on the behavior of the process. 17) −∞ m n is called the n th moment.
