This paper is concerned with the continuous contact problem of two transversely isotropic layers resting on a circular support. The external load is applied to the layers by a rigid cylindrical block. It is assumed that the contact between all surfaces is frictionless and body forces are not taken into account. The problem is formulated in terms of singular integral equations obtained from the continuous contact position. Equations are solved numerically by using the Gauss-Chebyshev integration method. Furthermore, numerical results as pressure distributions under the rigid cylindrical block are given for different material combinations.
Key Words: Contact problem; Transversely isotropic material; Rigid cylindrical block, Circular support; Singular integral equation.
