Abstract:

The objective of this program was to conduct a preliminary analytical investigation of the stress field in a hollow sphere in the vicinity of the contact area. The sphere is subjected to a normal load applied through a flat plate. The elastic contact shape and extent were developed for a load of 1000 lb. applied to a one-inch diameter hollow ball with a 0.08 inch thick wall. Author
