This work analytically investigates effect of previous loading on contact area, number of contact prints, their size distribution, and the value of thermal contact conductance for two nominally flat surfaces in contact. The model used in the analysis assumes that the surfaces are Gaussian and that in the first loading deformation of the surface asperities is plastic.
