Document Type: Journal Paper
The infinite, elastic beam on three different types of linear viscoelastic foundations is analyzed under various loads. Initial, transient, and terminal states of beam deflection and foundation pressure are determined; conditions on the load function are stated. Numerical examples with graphs are given. The extension of the results to finite beams is discussed.
