TABLES OF STRESSES, STRAINS AND DISPLACEMENTS IN TWO-LAYER ELASTIC SYSTEMS UNDER VARIOUS TRAFFIC LOADS

TABLES OF THEORETICAL SOLUTIONS ARE COVERED FOR THE STRESSES, STRAINS AND DISPLACEMENTS IN TWO-LAYER SYSTEMS IN WHICH THE MATERIALS ARE ELASTIC AND ISOTROPIC. THE TYPE OF LOADS CONSIDERED ARE VERTICAL, INWARD SHEAR, AND UNI-DIRECTIONAL SHEAR, ALL APPLIED OVER CIRCULAR AREAS. IN THE TWO-LAYER SYSTEM THE POINTS AT WHICH SOLUTIONS ARE PROVIDED ARE ON THE SURFACE OF THE TOP LAYER, ALONG BOTH SIDES OF THE INTERFACE, AND ON THE LOAD AXIS. SOME OF THE MORE IMPORTANT SOLUTIONS HAVE ALSO BEEN PRESENTED GRAPHICALLY TO ALLOW A RAPID APPRAISAL OF THE EFFECTS OF THE VARIABLES. THE RESULTS PRESENTED ARE MORE COMPREHENSIVE THAN THOSE AVAILABLE PREVIOUSLY AND ALLOW MOST OF THE PRIMARY VARIABLES TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS. IN ADDITION, THEY CAN BE APPLIED TO SOME FOUNDATION PROBLEMS. /RRL/A/
