Some problems of stress distribution in a periodic stratified elastic stratum

Stanisław J. Matysiak, Vladimir I. Pauk
The paper deals with the problems of stress distribution caused by gravitation forces in a periodic stratified elastic layer resting on a rigid foundation. The surface of substrate is assumed to be a plane with an infinitely long slender overlay or a narrow excavation having rectangular cross-sections. The problem is solved within the framework of the homogenized model with mi-crolocal parameters.
