Abstract: This paper is concerned with a new type of free boundary problems for elastic bodies with a rigid inclusion being in contact with another rigid inclusion or with a non-deformable punch. We propose correct problem formulations with inequality type boundary conditions of a non-local type describing a mutual non-penetration between surfaces. Solution existence is proved for different types of inclusions and different geometries. Qualitative properties of solutions are analyzed provided that rigidity parameters are changed.
