The stressing of a material in concentrated contacts can be calculated using f.e. the equivalent stress hypothesis by Huber, von Mises, Hencky (distortion energy hypothesis). The stress level can be directly related to the local yield properties of the material. For the calculation of the equivalent stress the influence of friction and internal stresses in the material have to be taken into account. The local stress level in the half space strongly depends on friction and internal stresses. It will be demonstrated, that it is necessary to have a look at a greater part of the full half space to find the maximum stress level.
