INFLUENCE CHART FOR VERTICAL STRESS INCREASES DUE TO HORIZONTAL SHEAR LOADINGS

AN INFLUENCE CHART IS PRESENTED FOR COMPUTING THE VERTICAL STRESS INCREASE IN THE INTERIOR OF A SEMI-INFINITE HOMOGENEOUS ISOTROPIC ELASTIC MASS DUE TO DISTRIBUTED HORIZONTAL SHEARING STRESSES APPLIED AT THE SURFACE. AN EXAMPLE FOR A SQUARE SURFACE AREA LOADED WITH A UNIFORM VERTICAL STRESS AND A WEDGE-SHAPED HORIZONTAL SHEARING STRESS IS THEN WORKED OUT TO ILLUSTRATE THE USE OF THE INFLUENCE CHART. THE MATHEMATICAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE INFLUENCE CHART AND A TABLE SUMMARIZING THE DATA REQUIRED TO CONSTRUCT THE INFLUENCE CHART ARE ALSO GIVEN. /AUTHOR/
