Özet

Constitutive equations, based on continuum mechanics and representing behavior of a mixture of two elastic solids, can be used for modeling of materials such as particulate composites. In this study, the behavior of continuum of a mixture occupying half-space under axisymmetric loads is calculated using Fourier and Hankel transform methods. For this purpose, Love's strain functions are used and the general solution of problem under proper boundary conditions is presented. By applying the results obtained to the sinusoidal distributed vertical load and Boussinesq problems that require the use of Cartesian and cylindrical coordinate systems, displacement vectors, diffusive force vector and components of stress tensors are calculated. At the end of the study, the experimental results of a special particulate composite are used to check the accuracy of the solutions obtained.
