Half-space Contact Problem

I recently found an old paper (1953) by C.K. Liu “Stresses due to tangential and normal loads on an elastic solid with application to some contact stress problems” in the Journal of Applied Mechanics. Extension of this solution to Anisotropic bodies are currently available (See C. Hwu’s papers for transveresly isortropic bodies) mostly using Stroh Formalism with integral transform techniques. However, I have not been successful in finding a paper solving a similar contact problem using Lekhnitskii’s approach! well, I will keep looking. 🙂
