Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An analytical elasticity solution for a half-space having a spheroidal sliding inclusion is obtained. The inclusion is subjected to either a uniform plane hydrostatic loading applied at infinity or a uniform transformation strain (eigenstrain). The interface between the inclusion and the surrounding material allows sliding and does not sustain shear tractions. Boussinesq’s displacement potentials in infinite integral form and in infinite series form are used in the analysis. Numerical examples are included.
