The paper gives the singularity for a concentrated lateral load on a unidirectionally compressed plate. The method of images is used to treat the infinite strip. For suitable initial conditions, the results derived for the unidirectionally compressed plate under static loads may also be interpreted as a solution for the plate subjected to moving loads.
