(14) (15) The subscript j is employed for expression of the term concerning j-th stratum. The displacement amplitude Uj(zj) and the shear stress amplitude Tj(zj) in the j-th stratum can be expressed by: (16) (17) ( j) j-th stratum ( j+1) Ej Fj Zj Uj(zj) Τj(zj) dj On the (j+1)-th interface between j-th and (j+1)-th stratum, the displacement continuity: (18) And the shear stress continuity : (19) must be satisfied: zj=0 ( j) ( j) Ej Fj Zj Uj(dj)=Uj+1(0) ( j+1) Ej+1 ( j+1) Fj+1 dj Τj(dj)=Τj+1(0) Zj+1 Putting Eq.(16) : (16) into...
