The solution is obtained for both smooth and bonded contact between strips of different elastic materials and widths. First, the problems are reduced to singular integral equations which are unusual because of the mixed boundary condition on the end of the wider strip. With minor extensions of the usual methods the order of the stress singularity at the corners is extracted from the integral equations and numerical solutions are then obtained for various material combinations and width ratios. The results are compared to previous solutions in which the width ratio is either one or infinity.
