We consider the mixed problem for the Lamé system{(L u = 0, in Ω,; u |D = fD, on D,; frac(∂ u, ∂ ρ) = fN, on N,; (∇ u)* ∈ Lp (∂ Ω)) in the class of bounded Lipschitz creased domains. Here D and N partition ∂Ω and ∂ / ∂ ρ stands for the traction operator. We suppose the Dirichlet data fD has one derivative in Lp (D) and the traction data fN is in Lp (N). For p in a small interval containing 2, we find a unique solution to the mixed problem subject to the condition that the non-tangential maximal function of the gradient of the solution is in Lp (∂ Ω).
