In this chapter the method for reducing a problem in the theory of elasticity to a generalized, in the sense of I.N.Vekua, Hilbert boundary-value problem, is extended to a mixed 3-D problem for a truncated sphere with a rigidly fixed spherical surface. The normal stresses at the cut are specified. The problems for a half-space with a spherical hollow or jut are treated similarly. The systems of functional equations of these problems are transformed to systems of singular integral equations. Then contact problems of a circular and annular punch punch are considered. Integral equations of these problems are reduced, supposing a geometric symmetry of contact regions, to Fredholm integral equations of the second kind with help of the method of paired equations.
