The interfacial contact and extension of two joining surfaces are numerically studied using a finite element method. The joining surface is assumed to have two-dimensional triangular asperities. Surface-asperity-induced voids are formed at the initial contact. The interfacial extension of the initial contact area is very different from that of void surface area. The initial void surface area shrank once before full contact was attained. The large asperity angle facilitates interfacial extension
