Schematics of asperity contacts and associated normal load versus interference response: (a) both asperities deform elastically and the contact opposes the onset of relative movement; (b) both asperities deform elastically and tend to separate at the inception of sliding; (c) at least one asperity deforms plastically and the contact opposes the onset of relative movement; and (d) at least one asperity deforms plastically and the asperities tend to separate at the inception of sliding
