The Fourier-Bessel integral approach was first applied to thick-plate problems of elasticity by Lamb and later by Dougall. Still later, the method, now known as the Hankel transform method, was applied to several cases of the thick-plate problem by Sneddon who, apparently, was the first to obtain numerical results for the stresses in thick plates by this method. Sneddon devised an approximate method for evaluating the integrals; i.e., inverting the transforms, which he encountered. The main contribution of the present paper consists in the more precise numerical evaluation of the integrals involved for a special case previously considered by Sneddon, but for values of parameters outside the range studied by Sneddon. In particular, it is hoped that the formulation of integration procedures presented will be found useful in other thick-plate problems.
