This book presents a general elastic and elastoplastic analysis method for the treatment of two- and three-dimensional contact problems between two deformable bodies undergoing small displacements with and without friction.

The author’s approach uses the Boundary Element Method (BEM) and Mathematical Programming (MP). This is applied to the contacting bodies pressed together by a normal force which is sufficient to expand the size of the contact area, mainly through plastic deformation, acted on subsequently by a tangential force less than that necessary to cause overall sliding.

The formulated method described in this book is straightforward and applicable to practical engineering problems.
