Summary Nonrotating half-planes in contact under oblique loading are investigated in this paper. The solution is based on the influence integrals of the Flamant solution. The problem is determined by two integral equations for the normal and tangential stresses, which are uncoupled for special cases, as bodies of similar material in contact. In order to simplify the singular integrals, the method of superposition of flat punches is used. The result for the symmetric case is almost identical with the axisymmetric solution. For polynomial profiles of the form x s , the Muskhelishvili potentials can be written in terms of a complex hypergeometric function. The interior stress field is illustrated for an example.
