Abstract:

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.
