The solution is obtained for both smooth and bonded contact between the strip and half plane of different elastic materials. First, the problems are reduced to singular integral equations of the second kind. Then the order of the stress singularity at the corners is extracted from the integral equations and numerical solutions are obtained. Interface normal and shearing stress are exhibited graphically for several material combinations.
