This paper develops a frictional moving contact model for a functionally graded (FG) orthotropic layer pressed by a rigid cylindrical punch. The FG orthotropic layer is fully bonded to the isotropic half-plane. The punch moves to the left on the layer at a constant subsonic velocity and a shear stress arises in the contact zone according to the Coulomb friction law. General expressions of displacements and stresses are derived with the help of the Fourier transform and Galilean transformation. Using boundary conditions, the moving contact problem is reduced to a Cauchy-type singular integral equation, the unknowns of which are contact stress and contact width. Gauss–Jacobi integration formula is used to solve the obtained singular integral equation. The effect of some parameters and material properties on the contact width, contact stress and in-plane stress are given in graphical forms and detailed numerical interpretations are presented.
