Abstract: Asymptotic solution of a 2-D integral equation of constant kernel with small parameter $ \varepsilon $,

$\displaystyle \int_0^\pi {\int_{ - \infty }^\infty p } \,dsd\psi + \varepsilon r\int_0^\pi {\int_{ - \infty }^\infty p } \,ds\cos \psi d\psi = G(r),$

which occurs in a more exact form of Hertz's contact problem in elasticity, is presented in this paper based on the solution of a 2-D integral equation

$\displaystyle \int_0^\pi {\int_{ - \infty }^\infty} pdsd\psi = F(r)$

with constant kernel, and the unknown function $ p = p(s,\psi ) = p(t,\phi )$ is subjected to the following two constraints:

\begin{displaymath}\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} {p(t,\phi ) = p(t)\quad \forall \phi ... ...phi ) \notin E = \{ (t,\phi )\vert t \leq a\} } \\ \end{array} \end{displaymath}

where $ (s,\psi )$ are local polar coordinates with origin at $ M(r,0)$, with $ (r,0)$ measured by global polar coordinates $ (t,\phi )$ with origin at $ O(0,0)$. A more exact solution of Hertz's contact problem is found as an example.
