Contact problem of the frictionless indentation of elastic half-space by smooth rigid punch of curved profile is investigated. An exact expression of the contact pressure distribution for a curved profile punch in terms of integral involving the pressure distribution for sequence of flat punches is derived. The method is illustrated and validated by comparison with some well-known analytical solutions.
