Elastic half space with laminated coating of periodic structure under the action of Hertz’s pressure

  • R. D. Kul’chyts’kyi-Zhyhailo

We consider an axially symmetric problem of the theory of elasticity for a nonuniform half space loaded by Hertz’s pressure. The half space consists of a uniform base and a system of two periodically deposited elastic layers. The solution of the problem of the theory of elasticity for the nonuniform coating is compared with the solution of the problem in which this coating is simulated by a homogenized uniform layer.
