Abstract

The elastostatics problem of a rigid punch in smooth contact with an initially stressed transversely isotropic layer is investigated. The problem is formulated by writing the field equations in terms of suitable displacement potentials. In addition, an elementary beam theory solution is superimposed on the elasticity solution to satisfy the support boundary conditions for a finite beam. The cases studied are those of a simply supported beam and a clamped beam.
