Planar frictional motion of highly elastic bodies

G. Szefer

Arch. Mech. 54 (5-6), 647-661, 2002



The problem of motion of a beam-like elastic body along a horizontal plane in terms of friction, large displacements and finite strains will be considered. The equations of motion are derived using Gibbs-Appell approach. Deformations of the body and sliding velocity distribution are presented.
