  • Derjaguin's approximation at small separations - calculating interaction energy between two spheres or two cylinders;
  • Derjaguin's approximation to low-potential approximate expression - for plate–plate interaction energy;
  • two crossed cylinders - interaction energy formed by contributions of laths
