Using the method of conformal mapping, an alternate solution is obtained for the line contact deformation of a cylinder loaded between two flat plates. In this method, the elastic deformation of two half spaces, assuming an elliptical pressure distribution across the width of contact, does not have to be calculated relative to an arbitrarily selected stationary reference point.
