THE AXISYMMETRIC DEFORMATION OF A HOMOGENEOUS, CROSS- ANISOTROPIC ELASTIC HALF SPACE

THE SOURCES OF ANISOTROPY IN THE STRUCTURE OF SOILS ARE TRACED AND IT IS SUGGESTED THAT MANY PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS FROM THE HOMOGENEOUS CROSS-ANISOTROPIC ELASTIC HALF SPACE CAN BE USED TO PREDICT THE EFFECT OF THE STRUCTURE OF AN EARTH MASS ON ITS RESPONSE TO LOADING. BASED ON PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED METHODS, SOLUTIONS ARE PRODUCED FOR THE AXISYMMETRIC DEFORMATION OF A HOMOGENEOUS, CROSS-ANISOTROPIC ELASTIC HALF SPACE ACTED UPON BY THE FOLLOWING LOADING CONDITIONS: (1) UNIFORM VERTICAL PRESSURE, (2) UNIFORM VERTICAL DISPLACEMENT, (3) LINEARLY INCREASING RADIAL SHEAR STRESS, (4) LINEARLY INCREASING TORSIONAL SHEAR STRESS, AND (5) LINEARLY INCREASING TORSIONAL SHEAR DISPLACEMENT. IN ALL CASES, THE LOADED AREAS ARE CIRCULAR IN SHAPE AND THE SOLUTIONS INDICATE THE VARIATION OF ALL DISPLACEMENT, STRAIN, AND STRESS COMPONENTS THROUGHOUT THE HALF SPACE. /AUTHOR/
