The present study investigates the two-dimensional stresses and displacements in a finite rectangle whose one set of parallel edges is given a relative tangential displacement by means of rigidly attached planes. The other set of parallel edges is free from tractions. The problem is formulated in terms of a singular integral equation of the first kind, which yields the correct singular behavior of stresses at the corners. The integral equation is solved numerically by employing Gauss-Jacobi quadrature in conjunction with certain collocation technique. Numerical results of quantities of practical interests are shown graphically and also compared with the classical bending analysis.
