Partial slip contact analysis for a monoclinic half plane Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper, the nonlinear partial slip contact problem between a monoclinic half plane and a rigid punch of an arbitrary profile subjected to a normal load is considered. Applying Fourier integral transform and the appropriate boundary conditions, the mixed-boundary value problem is reduced to a set of two coupled singular integral equations, with the unknowns being the contact stresses under the punch in addition to the stick zone size. The GaussChebyshev discretization method is used to convert the singular integral equations into a set of nonlinear algebraic equations, which are solved with a suitable iterative algorithm to yield the lengths of the stick zone in addition to the contact pressures. Following a validation section, an extensive parametric study is performed to illustrate the effects of material anisotropy on the contact stresses and length of the stick zone for typical monoclinic fibrous composite materials.
