Prof. Gao,  Thank you

Prof. Gao,

 Thank you for sharing this work. I would also like to add another two related papers on contact problems using Gurtin's surface elasticity theory.

Analytical solutions for a surface-loaded isotropic elastic layer with surface energy effects

Elastic Field Of A Nano-Film Subjected To Tangential Surface Load: Asymmetric Problem

 The Hertz contact problem with surface elasticity has been solved in the chapter 4 of the following thesis:
