Abstract

The ever increasing demands in surface and subsurface properties of engineering components have led in the past few years to the rapid development of advanced surface coating techniques. A method for calculating the layer and subsurface stresses arising from the two-dimensional, dry, frictional contact of two elastic bodies with a rigidly bonded surface layer is presented. The results show that the substrate stress distributions between friction and frictionless contact are noticeable different. 1 Introduction Conventional Hertz theory is restricted to frictionless smooth surfaces and perfectly elastic solids. Significant progress in the field of non-layer surface contact over the last few decades has been associated largely with the removal of these
