This paper summarizes a recent sequence of theoretical investigations of plane and spatial load-transfer problems in linear elastostatics. Whereas the two-dimensional problems dealt with here have a particular relevance to aircraft structures, those concerning the transfer of load between a bar and a three-dimensional elastic medium are primarily of interest in connection with civil engineering structures and have a bearing on the mechanics of fiber-reinforced materials. An attempt is made to assess the role of alternative mathematical models in the treatment of the physical problems under consideration, to sketch the essential features of the required analysis, and to discuss the principal results obtained.
