Hybrid-Trefftz (HT) finite element (FE) analysis of two-dimensional elastic contact problems is addressed with the aid of interface elements and an interfacial constitutive relation. This paper presents the formulation of a four-noded HT finite element for discretizing the contacting bodies and a four-noded interface element that could be embedded in the prospective contact zone for simulating the interaction behaviour. Due to the superior performance, the Simpson-type Newton-Cotes integration...[Show more]
