A general method for the construction of a 3D solution applicable to the equilibrium of a linear elastic layer which is subjected to a general load of bending or stretching is discussed. In the special case of a layer with faces free of stress, the general solution is derived explicitly. The general solution has a sufficient number of arbitrary functions to allow it to be used to solve a whole class of practical 3D problems, e.g. an inclusion, a partial through-the-thickness crack, a cylindrical hole etc.
