In this article, I give an iteration method for solving the Signorini problem by the idea of concentration cancellation. The nonlinear quantity in the mathematical formulation of the problem caused by contact-friction effect on the boundary is relaxed to a convex functional. Therefore, the relaxed problem can be solved by using convex minimization techniques which are numerically stable. Finally, good convergence property of the proposed method is proved. © 1990.
