On the relation between two-dimensional and axisymmetric loads in plate flexure problems

Detlef Wolf
This note has attempted to clarify the relation between straight-edged axisymmetric loads and straight-edged two-dimensional loads by emphasizing the critical role of the elastic plate in this relation. It has been shown that loads of widely varying scale can be approximated by two-dImensional edges, provided that the lithosphere is sufficiently thin. As the distance from the edge of the load increases, the displacement w decreases. This results in enhanced relative discrepancies between the two models...
