contact pressure

contact pressure

[′kän‚takt ‚presh·ər]
(electricity)
The amount of pressure holding a set of contacts together.

contact pressure

Pressure, produced by the weight of a footing and all the forces acting on it, which acts at and perpendicular to the contact area between the footing and the soil.
