Abstract:

A general method is outlined for the calculation of the response of membranes with arbitrary boundaries to arbitrary loadings. It is assumed that, by projecting the area of the given membrane on the surface of an unbounded membrane and then applying the given loading to this projection, the application of a suitable load distribution around the boundary of the projection will enable us to satisfy the boundary conditions appropriate to the given membrane. An attempt to find the distribution in question leads to a logarithmically singular integral equation of an unusual type. A few solutions are outlined. Author
