On contact problems for a medium with rigid flat inclusions of arbitrary shape. (English) Zbl 0865.73052

Summary: Consider the elasto-static problem in which the contact between two compressed dissimilar elastic half-spaces is perturbed by disc inclusions of various constant thicknesses, but arbitrary shapes. We show that the interfacial normal displacement is zero where the half-spaces are in contact, and present some generalizations of the result.
