This paper gives closed-form expressions in terms of elementary functions for the title problem of conical indentation of elastic bodies possessing transverse isotropy. Traction in the contact region is also included in the form of Coulomb friction; thus, the shear stress is taken proportional to the contact pressure. The present expressions are derived here by integration of the point force Green’s functions.
