An analytical approach has been developed to predict the response of a rigid disc embedded
in elastoplastic media. The governing differential equations are obtained using the principle
of minimizing the potential energy. The displacement components in cylindrical coordinates
could be represented by Fourier series. The fitted method is used to determine the Fourier
series harmonic coefficients. Validation is made against finite element analysis and
previously published solutions.
