Abstract

In 1929 Love derived a solution in closed-form for the stress produced in a semi-infinite solid by surface normal pressure over a rectangular patch. Here a solution is obtained for the tangential loading on a rectangular patch. The solution gives the internal stress field in terms of elementary functions is a form analogous to the solution for vertical load developed by Love.
