The dependencies of the critical components of normal and tangential forces corresponding to the contact breakage between a parabolic indenter and an elastic half-space have been determined taking into account adhesive interaction. In order to describe the adhesive contact, the method of dimensionality reduction (MDR) and the modified rule of Heß taking into account tangential displacements have been used. The influence of the surface energy depending on the indenter separation angle has been studied.
