This paper investigates some of the modeling techniques available for predicting the real area of contact between two surfaces. These models are then applied to an idealized case of a rubber block in contact with a rough surface representing a tire on the road. A description of how the models work is presented. The various contact models are compared and analyzed. Qualitatively the models compare very well. Several models also compare well quantitatively.
