The large deformation of an elastic mount consisting of an infinite elastic strip of rectangular section bonded between two rigid plates under the combined loading of shear and normal forces is considered. The material is assumed to be homogeneous, isotropic and elastic, and has strain energy function of Mooney type. Explicit solutions are obtained for the case when strain in the normal direction is small. For this case, simple formulas relating the applied loads and deflection are given.
