The Winkler model and its application to soil

Theoretical Investigation An approximate general solution1 has been presented for contact pressures of finite beams resting on idealized models of the soil. The foundation models treated include :- (a) Winkler model of isolated springs; (b) homogeneous anisotropic half-space, isotropy being a special case (c) non-homogeneous half-space, compressibility decreasing with depth LAING BARDEN
