Two Strips Problem Resting on an Elastic Foundation
AbstractIn this paper, a layered composite made of two materials with different elastic constants and heights resting on an elastic foundation is studied according to theory of Elasticity. Symmetrical distributed load whose length is 2a is applied to the upper elastic layer. Gravity forces of the layered composite are neglected. The components of the stresses and displacements at a point located in the layered composite are obtained by using Integral Transform technique. Singular terms are subtracted from expressions of the stresses and their closed integral forms are added. The stresses and the displacements in any point of the layered composite are investigated and their graphics are plotted.
