TABLES OF STRESSES, STRAINS AND DISPLACEMENTS IN THREE-LAYER ELASTIC SYSTEMS UNDER VARIOUS TRAFFIC LOADS

This report contains tables of theoretical solutions for the stresses, strains and displacements in three-layer elastic and isotropic systems. The types of loads considered are vertical, inward shear, and uni-directional shear, all applied over circular areas. In the three-layer system the points at which solutions are provided are on the surface of the top layer, along the two interfaces between layers, and on the load axis. Examples of the practical application of the tables illustrate some of the more important aspects of solutions. The results presented are more comprehensive than those available previously and allow most of the primary variables to be considered in the design and analysis of flexible pavements. In addition, they can be applied to some foundation problems. /Author/
