Using an explicit expression for the Barnett-Lothe tensors, an analytical method is introduced for determining the contact characteristics of anisotropic composite materials. The influence of arbitrary fiber orientations on the contact pressure distribution for unidirectional continuous fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites is investigated. To demonstrate the proposed analytical method, the frictional sliding contact between a unidirectional FRP composites and a rigid parabolic cylinder is analyzed. Based on the theoretical results for different fiber orientation angles, the relationships between the contact characteristics of fiber-reinforced plastics and their tribological performance are analyzed and discussed.
