  1. Should Contact pressure/hertz contact stress be less than Ultimate stress of a material ?

    • ı think, the hertzian contact ( principal ) stresses should be less than the yield stress of material, otherwise some permanent damages will be occurred on the contact surface of two elastic bodies.
