FORMULAS ARE PRESENTED FOR COMPUTING THE STRESSES, STRAINS, AND DEFLECTIONS PRODUCED AT A POINT WITHIN A SEMI-INFINITE, HOMOGENEOUS, ELASTICALLY ISOTROPIC BODY BY A UNIFORM CIRCULAR LOAD APPLIED TO ITS SURFACE. THE EXPRESSIONS PRESENTED ARE OBTAINED PRINCIPALLY BY EXTENDING AND DEVELOPING THE WORK OF A. E. H. LOVE. REFERENCE IS MADE ALSO TO AN EARLIER WORK BY KWAN-ICHI TERAZAWA WHO OBTAINED A SOLUTION BY A METHOD DIFFERENT FROM LOVE'S. SOME DISCUSSION IS INCLUDED ON THE RELATION BETWEEN THE TWO METHODS. /AUTHOR/
