Abstract:

A method is described for obtaining an exact transient solution to the problem of an elastic half-space whose surface is excited by a semi-infinite line load. The load acts normal to the surface of the half-space and it has impulsive time dependence. The resulting displacement field is discussed in some detail. Author
