By combining Stroh’s formalism and the method of analytical continuation, several mixed-typed boundary value problems of an anisotropic elastic half-plane are studied in this paper. First, we consider a set of rigid punches of arbitrary profiles indenting into the surface of an anisotropic elastic half-plane with no slip occurring. Illustrations are presented for the normal and rotary indentation by a flat-ended punch. A sliding punch with or without friction is then considered under the complete or incomplete indentation condition.
