ELASTIC SETTLEMENT OF A CROSS ANTISOTROPHIC MEDIUM UNDER AXI-SYMMETRIC LOADING

This paper deals with elastic surface settlement of a cross anisotropic medium due to a point lad and axi-symmetric distributed load. Out of five elastic constants, viz., two young's modulii, two poisson's ratios and one shear modulus, characterising a cross anisotropic medium, it has been possible to eliminate one poisson's ratio. Graphs have been presented taking into account the other elastic constants, and from these graphs the elastic settlement for a moderately anisotropic medium can readily be calculated.
