Journal Article
Hills, D., Ramesh, R., Barber, J., & Moore, M. (2018). Methods to solve half-plane partial slip contact problems. International Journal of Solids and Structures, 155, 155-159. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijsolstr.2018.07.019

There exists a family of methods for finding the extent of partial slip in contact problems between elastically similar bodies, capable of idealisation by half-planes. Closed form solutions are given to problems subject to a constant normal load and... Read More about Methods to solve half-plane partial slip contact problems.

Half-plane partial slip contact problems with a constant normal load subject to a shear force and differential bulk tension (2018)
Journal Article
Moore, M., Ramesh, R., Hills, D., & Barber, J. (2018). Half-plane partial slip contact problems with a constant normal load subject to a shear force and differential bulk tension. Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids, 118, 245-253. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jmps.2018.05.017

This article provides a new form of solution to half-plane contact problems in partial slip where a normal load has been applied, held constant and is subsequently loaded with both a shear force and differential bulk tension. It uses a formulation wh... Read More about Half-plane partial slip contact problems with a constant normal load subject to a shear force and differential bulk tension.

Solution of half-plane contact problems by distributing climb dislocations (2018)
Journal Article
Moore, M., & Hills, D. (2018). Solution of half-plane contact problems by distributing climb dislocations. International Journal of Solids and Structures, 147, 61-66. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijsolstr.2018.04.017

We derive a novel method for addressing half-plane contact problems by using distributions of climb dislocations over the contact patch to balance the relative overlapping profile of the contacting bodies. Using this technique, we are able to forgo i... Read More about Solution of half-plane contact problems by distributing climb dislocations.
