Abstract:

Basic singular solutions for the equations of elasticity in a three-dimensional transversely isotropic domain are generated and studied. A rational approach is then presented for the generation of the solution of various concentrated-load problems in the half-space. In particular, a previously unknown solution for a concentrated load in the half-space parallel to the free surface is derived and discussed. A completeness proof for a stress-function approach for problems in three dimensional transverse isotropy is also presented. Author
