Frictionless static contact between two layered elastic cylinders is examined. Local curvature of the the contacting surfaces is taken into account. Green’s function is derived and utilized to reduce the contact problem to Fredholm integral equation of the first kind with unknown contact width, unknown contact pressure distribution and unknown normal approach. Solution of this integral equation is obtained in the form of an infinite system of linear algebraic equations with the aid of Fourier transformation. The resulting equations are solved to give the pressure distribution and the normal approach for assumed contact width. Numerical results of two examples are presented: one in which an elastic layer bonded to a rigid cylinder is indented by another rigid cylinder, and, a second in which a layered elastic cylinder is indented by another layered elastic cylinder. The results obtained in the first example are compared with analytical solutions and with experimental data known from the literature.
