A solution is presented for the problem of an elastic layer that is indented by an infinite array of punches moving with a steady velocity below the Rayleigh wave speed. The layer is assumed to be loaded symmetrically about its midplane. The equations of plane elasticity are used to develop dual series equations which are reduced to a single Fredholm integral equation. An asymptotic solution to the integral equation is developed for the case when the ratio of contact length to punch spacing is small, and it is compared with a numerical solution. Numerical calculations for the effective stiffness of the layer and the stresses along the midplane are included.
