Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 2)


In the present chapter we will discuss numerical results of various computer programs by several authors, and indicate their application to technological problems. The contact is assumed to be concentrated, that is, the bodies are approximated by half-spaces as far as the elasticity calculations are concerned, while the boundary conditions are set up for the real geometry and kinematics, see Ch. 1, Sec. 1.6. Friction is or is not present; when there is friction, it is dry, and modeled by Coulomb’s Law. In addition, the bodies are assumed to be homogeneous and isotropic.
