A Critical Study Of The Stress Singularities Of An Elastic Polygon Under Longitudinal Shear, Walter C. Ballard Jan 1965

A Critical Study Of The Stress Singularities Of An Elastic Polygon Under Longitudinal Shear, Walter C. Ballard

Theses and Dissertations

The order of the stress singularity at its vertex of a wedge of two bonded elastic media under longitudinal shear is solved by use of the Williams method. The similar problem of an elastic wedge bonded to a rigid foundation is also solved using the same method. Next, the problem of a cylindrical elastic media whose boundary is a polygon bonded to a rigid foundation and subjected to various types of longitudinal shear loads on its boundary is considered. A number of examples are worked out and expressions for contact stresses along the bonds are given.
