Using the Finite Element Method, an analysis is given of the indentation of an elasticplastic half-space by a rigid sphere. In particular, attention is focused on the effect of hardening rules on the material response. The materials considered are supposed to exhibit isotropic and kinematic hardening. Moreover, it is shown that the possibility of similar behavior due to effects of friction can be ruled out.
