Abstract: In this paper, a Signorini problem is reduced to a variational inequality on the boundary, and a direct boundary element method is presented for its solution. Furthermore, error estimates for the approximate solutions of Signorini problems are given. In addition, we show that the Signorini problem may be formulated as a saddle-point problem on the boundary.
