Generalization of the kerr foundation model

Grzegorz Jemielita
The aim of this paper is to propose a generalized model of the elastic foundation consisting of the n - SBS layers. Each SBS layer (Shear layer - Bending layer - Spring layer) consists at the outmost three layers: a layer capable of bearing shearing loads, a bending layer and a layer consisting of springs. The general formulae describing the response of each a foundation are derived and analyzed.
