Three boundary-value problems for an orthotropic half plane are solved. They correspond to the cases studied in a previous investigation by Karasudhi, Keer, and Lee [9] for a body undergoing independent vertical, horizontal, and rocking motion. Dynamic stiffnesses are computed for three typical orthotropic materials: beryllium, ice, and a steel-mylar composite.
