Abstract

Three different theories are used to evaluate the influence of variations in Poisson's ratio on the surface deflection function for two- layered elastic systems. The practical applicability of the theories is appraised by comparing theoretical results with those obtained from experimental study; this comparison is most favorable for the equivalent thickness theory. Model plate load tests were conducted on a two- layer system consisting of a lucite top layer and a polyester resin bottom layer.
