Shape optimization of a two-dimensional elastic body is considered, provided the material is weakly supporting tension. The problem generalizes that of a masonry dam subjected to its own weight and to the hydrostatic presure. Existence of an optimal shape is proved. Using a penalty method and finite element technique, approximate solutions are proposed and their convergence is analyzed.

Extending the results of the previous paper [1], the authors consider elastic bodies with two design variables, i.e. "curved trapezoids" with two curved variable sides. The left side is loaded by a hydrostatic pressure. Approximations of the boundary are defined by cubic Hermite splines and piecewise linear finite elements are used for the displacements. Both existence and some convergence analysis is presented for approximate penalized optimal design problems.

The paper deals with the approximation of contact problems of two elastic bodies by finite element method. Using piecewise linear finite elements, some error estimates are derived, assuming that the exact solution is sufficiently smooth. If the solution is not regular, the convergence itself is proven. This analysis is given for two types of contact problems: with a bounded contact zone and with enlarging contact zone.
