An analytical expression for the stresses in contacting anisotropic cylinders containing a singularity is derived, including the effects of sliding friction. The solution is obtained using complex variables, and is expressed in terms of piece-wise analytic functions. Concentrated force and edge dislocation type singularities are both considered, providing a solution useful for various boundary integral applications.
