The problem considered is contact between two dissimilar elastic cylinders, having their axes parallel and sliding in a direction normal to the axes. The traction distribution is determined, as are the resultant stresses generated in each body. It is found that the stresses well within the body are not changed greatly from a classical Hertz analysis, where coupling between the normal and shear tractions is neglected, but that there is a first order modification of surface tensile stresses.
