Mathematical Modeling of Processes in a Stressed Medium for the Case of a Sudden Break in Continuity

  • A. S. KimEmail author
  • Yu. R. ShpadiEmail author


The nonstationary processes are considered in a prestressed medium for the case of a sudden viscoelastic break in continuity under the conditions of longitudinal shear. It is assumed that the break proceeds along a semi-infinite strip coincident with the plane of maximum shear stresses. The problem is solved analytically in terms of displacements by the Wiener-Hopf method.
