Abstract

The steady state response of a deep, narrow, rectangular foundation to antiplane shear waves is studied. Consideration is given first to the dynamic response of a single rigid line inclusion. This result is used to model a rectangular foundation in a manner similar to Haritos and Keer who studied the problem of a rigid block partially embedded in an elastic half-space. Because the problem is antiplane, the results arrived at for the deep, narrow, rectangular foundation also apply to a shallow, wide, rectangular foundation.
