The two-dimensional indentation problem of an elastic layer by either a wedge with a rounded tip or a flat punch with rounded corners in the presence of friction is investigated numerically. Contact stresses and deformations are presented when the layer is either bonded or resting without friction on a rigid foundation. Moreover, a set of asymptotic solutions for the contact pressure is obtained for an unbonded thin layer (the contact width is significantly larger than the layer thickness). The… CONTINUE READING
