Galin derived an expression for the pressure produced under a rigid circular punch by the application of a concentrated load at another point of the half space. This result is used to derive approximate relationships among the forces, moments, and indentations for a system of punches on an elastic half space. The results are compared with a number of earlier approximate solutions.
