In this chapter, we consider the axisymmetric contact problem for a frictionless annular indenter and, in particular, solve this problem in the two limit situations of a narrow indenter and a wide indenter, depending on the ratio of the radii of the ring-shaped contact region. We then obtain the asymptotic solutions to the pipette aspiration problem in the two limiting cases.
