Abstract:

The present paper contains a critical study of a number of foundation models suggested by various investigators, as well as a further development of some ideas involved. It is found that the model by Pasternak is the most natural extension of the Winkler foundation. It is also shown that the nonsolvability of the problem of a finite beam or plate resting on a continuous foundation as posed by Wieghardt and further elaborated by Pflanz is not correct, and that problems of this type are solvable for any load distribution permissible in classical plate theory. The paper concludes with derivations of differential equations for plates resting on viscous and viscoelastic foundations, which may be used for solving problems involving compacted snow and permafrost bases.
