The plane wave propagation in a half space due to a uniformly distributed step load of pressure and shear on the surface was first studied by Bleich and Nelson. The material in the half space was assumed to be elastic-ideally plastic. In this paper, we study the same problem for a general elastic-plastic material. The half space can be initially prestressed. The results can be extended to the case in which the loads on the surface are not necessarily step loads, but with a restricting relation between the pressure and the shear stresses.
