Conference paper


In this paper, the Kelvin’s solution, the Boussinesq’s solution and their generalized solutions defined in 2 and 3 dimensional region are considered as the elastic fundamental solution. These solutions can be classified to the one with a logarithm singularity and with a power type’s singularity. The method of finite element analysis for each solution is proposed and the numerical results are shown in this paper.
