The exact solution is given for a line load acting on a half space of a power-law elastic material under conditions of plane stress. This solution is compared with the corresponding solution under plane-strain conditions; see Aruliunian [1]. A marked difference is found between the plane-stress and plane-strain fields for different values of the hardening exponent.
