This Note considers the transient response in the interior of a half space acted upon by a normal impulsive stationary semi-infinite line load. The solution for the corresponding infinite line load problem is contained in the solution for the case of a semi-infinite line load. By a simple superposition, the solution is obtained for a half space acted upon by a finite line load.
