Connection between Elastic and Conductive Properties of Microstructures with Hertzian Contacts

The observation is made that the elastic compliance and the thermal/electric conductivity of a Hertzian contact depend on the contact geometry in a similar way. Being extended to a system of multiple contacts (a granular material, or a contact of two rough surfaces) it yields an explicit connection...
