A new solution procedure for contact problems in elasticity with prescribed normal tractions on contact surface has been proposed in this paper. The procedure is based on the boundary element method and quadratic programming. It is next used in a two step solution algorithm for the analysis of contact problems with friction. Several numerical examples are presented and compared with results obtained using alternative solution methods.
