The Melan’s shakedown theorem applies to uncoupled frictional contact problems, but is known formally not to apply in the case of coupled contacts. In this paper we look at two example coupled problems (one very strongly coupled) in detail and show that, in fact, for these specific cases, shakedown does occur for a range of initial load states.
