The problem of torsion of a rigid punch in contact with an elastic layer where the friction law is arbitrary is solved by the method of A. H. England [11]. The solution is seen to depend upon the further solution of two independent Fredholm integral equtaions. As a first approximation to these equations the problem for torsion on an elastic half-space is solved.
