Abstract : The edges of the strip of infinite length are taken free of stress while the edge of finite length is assumed to have either stress, displacement of mixed boundary conditions. The equations are put in the form of a system of first order equations and solved by means of a generalized Fourier series. For the mixed end conditions the Fourier coefficients are given by formulae. For the stress and displacement problems the coefficients must be determined from an infinite set of equations. A numerical example is solved for the stress problem. (Author)
