Abstract:

One of the basic problems in ground structural mechanics is computing the set of building foundations. To solve this problem it is necessary to have a suitable model of the ground base, i.e., a system of mathematical relations permitting the calculation of stress fields, deformations, etc., in the mass below the foundation of the given configuration, carrying the given load of the building. At the present time, a model of the linear resilient medium is used in this capacity, and the solution of various boundary-value problems within the framework of the linear theory of resilience is used for the solution of technical problems.
