This paper analyzes the response of a transversely isotropic half space subjected to various distributions of normal and tangential contact stresses on its surface. Both the interior displacement and stress fields are given in closed form. Among them, rectangular patch solutions are constructed for application to solutions to non-Hertzian contact problems.
