In this chapter, we consider the circumferential tangential displacement field induced at the surface of a transversely isotropic elastic half-space by axisymmetric torsional loading, e.g., with the help of a rigid punch bonded to the half-space surface. In particular, the axisymmetric problem of the torsion of an elastic half-space produced by means of a bonded flat-ended punch is studied in detail.
