Steady state response to moving loads in a magneto-elastic initially stressed conducting medium

  • Ramgopal Ray

Investigated is the steady state response to moving loads in an initially stressed magneto-elastic half-space bounded by a plane. The results obtained in this problem are in agreement with the corresponding classical results when the half space is supposed to be initially unstressed and non-magnetic.
