  • The original Russian books were seminal in the development of the important area of Contact Mechanics
  • The research underlying the original 1953 edition was performed by Galin many years before there was any appreciable work in the area in Western Europe and North America; the book therefore has historical and archival value

About this book

L.A. Galin's book on contact problems is a remarkable work. Actually there are two books: the first, published in 1953 deals with contact problems in the classical theory of elasticity; this is the one that was translated into English in 1961. The second book, published in 1980, included the first, and then had new sections on contact problems for viscoelastic materials, and rough contact problems; this section has not previously been translated into English.

In this new translation, the original text and the mathematical analysis have been completely revised, new material has been added, and the material appearing in the 1980 Russian translation has been completely rewritten.

In addition there are three essays by students of Galin, bringing the analysis up to date.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book, edited by G. M. L. Gladwell, is essentially a summary of the life-long contributions of Professor L. A. Galin to the discipline of Contact Mechanics. … the book is a very welcome addition to the literature in the steadily growing Mathematical Theory of Contact Mechanics. Professor G. M. L. Gladwell should be complemented on the considerable effort and time he put into this fine book, and the contributions of Galin’s students bring the results of this classical approach up to date.” (Meir Shillor, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 e)
