DISTRUBANCES PRODUCED BY VARIABLE BODY FORCES IN A LAYER OF FINITE THICKNESS RESTING ON A RIGID FOUNDATION

THE DISTURBANCES PRODUCED BY TIME-DEPENDENT TORSIONAL BODY FORCES IN A LAYER OF ELASTIC MATERIAL LYING ON A RIGID FOUNDATION ARE DISCUSSED. SOLUTIONS ARE OBTAINED FIRST FOR A GENERAL TYPE OF BODY FORCE, AND THE SOLUTIONS FOR AN IMPULSIVE CYLINDRICAL SOURCE AND AN IMPULSIVE TORSIONAL LINE SOURCE OF FINITE LENGTH ARE DEDUCED. IT IS FOUND THAT FOR ANY POINT IN THE LAYER, THERE IS NO DISTURBANCE UP TO A CERTAIN INSTANT, AFTER WHICH THERE IS A SUDDEN DISPLACEMENT, WHICH GRADUALLY FALLS OFF AND TENDS TO ZERO AS THE TIME INCREASES. /AUTHOR/
