Abstract

This chapter introduces the equations of continuum mechanics used in the book to describe the action of a load moving over a continuously supported plate. We shall bias our discussion towards the case of a floating ice plate, although at least qualitatively the discussion is applicable more generally to continuously supported plates subject to moving loads.
