Abstract

An analytic solution is given for the stressed-deformed state of an orthotropic half space acted on by a normal concentrated force applied to its boundary. It is shown that the traditional choice of a general representation of the displacements in a gradient form, where the potential functions are in the form of double Fourier integrals with unknown densities, reduces the problem to solving two systems of linear algebraic equations – homogeneous and inhomogeneous. A solution obtained by taking a limiting transition is given for the case of an isotropic half space.
