Abstract

The singular integral equations method is applied to the contact problem of an elastic-half plane with a circular defect. As a defect, a circular hole is considered and this problem is replaced with the elastic half-plane with a continuous array of dislocations instead of the circular hole. The traction free condition on the surface of the circular hole is reduced into a set of singular integral equations of the Cauchy type. In solving the singular integral equations numerically, the Hilbert inversion formula is applied. 1. Introduction The stress analysis of defects near the
