contact stress; crack propagation
The authors discuss the title problem. They identify and cite inconsistency and error in a long standing and established solution of the problem [\textit{J. Cole} and \textit{J. Huth}, J. Appl. Mech. 25, 433-436 (1958)]. Then they provided a correct formulation and solution which is found to be consistent with results of companion and related analyses. The paper is brief but quite informative. It should be of interest and use to theoreticians and engineers working with contact mechanics and crack propagation.
