AN EMPIRICAL EQUATION FOR CALCULATING DEFLECTIONS ON THE SURFACE OF A TWO-LAYER ELASTIC SYSTEM

AN EMPIRICALLY DERIVED ALGEBRAIC EXPRESSION HAS BEEN DEVELOPED FOR COMPUTING SURFACE DEFLECTIONS OF A TWO-LAYER ELASTIC STRUCTURE LOADED VERTICALLY AT A POINT ON ITS SURFACE (OR ON A SUFFICIENTLY SMALL AREA OF THE SURFACE). CALCULATED DEFLECTIONS FROM THE EMPIRICAL EQUATION ARE IN SUBSTANTIAL AGREEMENT WITH THOSE OF PREVIOUS MORE LABORIOUS METHODS.
