Summary

The paper is concerned with the investigation of the plane Lamb's problem in which a line load is suddenly applied on a magneto-elastic initially stressed conducting half-space bounded by a plane. The results obtained in this investigation are in agreement with the corresponding results of the classical plane Lamb's problem when the semispace is supposed to be initially unstressed and non-magnetic.
