Part II of a theoretical study on the effect of moving loads on the surface of a cylindrical bore in an infinite elastic medium. The case of traveling loads with step function distributions in the longitudinal direction z is considered. Numerical results for stresses at the boundary of the bore are given for different values of the Mach number V/C, subscript p. Curves for the response due to axisymmetric (n = 0) and more general (n not equal to 0) applied traction loadings are shown. Displacement components at the boundary of the bore are also given.
