**Michell Solution**

The Michell solution is a general solution to the elasticity equations in polar coordinates . The solution is such that the stress components are in the form of a Fourier series in .

Michell showed that the general solution can be expressed in terms of an Airy stress function of the form

The terms and define a trivial null state of stress and are ignored.

### Famous quotes containing the word solution:

“I herewith commission you to carry out all preparations with regard to ... a total *solution* of the Jewish question in those territories of Europe which are under German influence.... I furthermore charge you to submit to me as soon as possible a draft showing the ... measures already taken for the execution of the intended final *solution* of the Jewish question.”

—Hermann Goering (1893–1946)
