Document Type: Journal Paper


A stress analysis, including displacements, is composed of the infinite orthotropic strip subject to distributed polynomial edge loads of degree n to and including n = 7. The loadings consist of both normal and shear loads with one edge stress free. Tables are given for appropriate Airy functions, together with pertinent values of constants in terms of the applied tractions.
