A transition condition from a conformal contact to a non-conformal contact is studied. A cylinderhole and the Hertz contacts are considered as a conformal and a non-conformal contact, respectively. First, the theory of the contact between a cylinder and a hole is revisited. Its peak traction is compared with the Hertzian peak. In the case of contact with elastically similar materials, the non-conformal contact can be assumed until the angle of contact reaches almost 38% of the maximum possible angle of contact if the difference in the traction peak is set as 5%.
