Contact problems are central to solid mechanics as contact is the principal method of applying loads to a deformable body and the point with resulting stress concentration is often the most critical point within the body. This paper presents a finite element model for the elastic contact between two cylinders at several positions. The effects of friction and surface roughness have been considered. The contact between two skew cylinders is also investigated. Results from finite element model show a good agreement with those of analytical solutions available in the literature. It was seen that the geometry of contacting bodies and orientation of applied load effect highly on contact stresses. Although the effect of surface roughness was seen to be more than that of friction, both of them can be assumed negligible in elastic contact problems.
