Grahic Jump Location
The interface region. In contact problems it can be interpreted as a “friction region”.
Grahic Jump Location
(a) The first kernel function L1 compared with the tangential force along the half-plane boundary; (b) The second kernel function L2 compared with the normal force.
Grahic Jump Location
The tangential force versus the tangential displacement
Grahic Jump Location
Horizontal sliding accompanied by a vertical compression for a structure involving three nonlinear interface layers
