STRESSES AND DEFLECTIONS INDUCED BY A UNIFORM CIRCULAR LOAD

THEORETICAL DETERMINATIONS WERE MADE OF THE STRESSES AND DEFLECTIONS INDUCED IN A HOMOGENEOUS, ISOTROPIC MASS BY A UNIFORM CIRCULAR LOAD. THESE DETERMINATIONS CONSIDER A SEMI- INFINITE, ELASTIC MASS HAVING A POISSON'S RATIO OF 0.5. INFLUENCE CHARTS DEVELOPED BY NEWMARK WERE USED TO COMPUTE NORMAL AND SHEAR STRESSES AND VERTICAL DEFLECTIONS AT SUFFICIENT DEPTHS AND OFFSETS TO DETERMINE THE VARIOUS STRESS AND DEFLECTION PATTERNS. THESE PATTERNS WERE THEN PORTRAYED AS FAMILIES OF CURVES. /AUTHOR/
