The Wiley-VCH journal “Zeitschrift für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik” (Web of Science Q3, Scopus Q2, Impact Factor JCR: 1.103) published an article “A strip with constant stresses on the cut: exact solutions”. Among the authors are employees of the IEPT RAS: senior researcher, Ph.D. A.P. Kerzhaev and senior researcher, Ph.D. I.V. Menshov.
We construct exact solutions of three boundary value problems in the theory of elasticity for an infinite strip with a central transverse cut on which constant normal stresses are specified (even-symmetric deformation). We consider three variants of homogeneous boundary conditions on the strip sides: (1) free sides, (2) firmly clamped sides, and (3) there are identical stiffeners on the strip sides. The solutions of all problems are represented as series in Papkovich–Fadle eigenfunctions whose coefficients are determined from simple closed formulas.More“A strip with constant stresses on the cut: exact solutions”
