Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1961, Vol. 87, Issue 3, Pg. 13-30

Document Type: Journal Paper


Concept of Pasternak-foundation, consisting of Winkler-foundation with shear interactions, is extended to case of viscoelastic behavior; formulation for vertical surface displacements due to creep and solutions for several loading cases are worked out; procedure to determine viscosity parameter and visco-compressibility parameter of vertical foundation elements; application of analysis to creep behavior of snow foundations.
