We consider a problem of contact of an elastic strip with a semiinfinite punch with rounded edge indented into one face of the strip, while the other face of the strip is fixed. Friction forces in the contact zone are neglected. By the Wiener–Hopf method, we obtain the exact analytic solution of the problem. The distributions of contact stresses, the stresses inside the strip and along its fixed face, and the normal displacements of points of a part of the load-free face of the strip are determined. We construct the isochores and determine the position of the point at which the maximum values of the principal shear stresses are attained.
