TABULATED VALUES FOR DETERMINING THE COMPLETE PATTERN OF STRESSES, STRAINS, AND DEFLECTIONS BENEATH A UNIFORM CIRCULAR LOAD ON A HOMOGENEOUS HALF SPACE

RESULTS OF EXTENSIVE COMPUTATIONS ARE PRESENTED IN A MANNER THAT PERMITS SIMPLE DETERMINATION OF THE COMPLETE PATTERN OF STRESS, STRAIN, AND DEFLECTION AT POINTS BENEATH A UNIFORM CIRCULAR LOAD ON AN ELASTIC, HOMOGENEOUS, ISOTROPIC, HALF SPACE. TABULATIONS ARE PRESENTED OF EIGHT FACTORS FOR A DENSE NETWORK OF POINTS IN TERMS OF DEPTH BELOW THE LOAD AND RADIAL DISTANCE FROM THE LOAD AXIS. SIMPLE FORMULAS ARE PRESENTED USING THESE FACTORS AND POISSON'S RATIO BY WHICH ANY COORDINATE STRESS, STRAIN, OR DEFLECTION MAY BE DETERMINED FOR ANY VALUE OF POISSON'S RATIO. /AUTHOR/
