Approximate contact models for film/substrate systems have been developed and validated in order to determine the shear moduli of mechanically confined films using lateral contact stiffness measurements. This approach allowed to discuss the effects of material compressibility, hydrostatic pressure and plastic deformation on the mechanical response of thin polymers films within macroscopic contacts.
