Grahic Jump Location
Shape of stress fields at three different times. Transverse stresses assume ν=0.3.
Grahic Jump Location
Time dependence of stresses at two different locations relative to the surface. Transverse stresses assume ν=0.3.
Grahic Jump Location
Stresses versus time at the surface and at the peak of the wave. Transverse stresses assume ν=0.3.
