In this paper Fourier transform is used to derive the analytical solution of a Kirchhoff plate on a viscoelastic foundation subjected to harmonic circular loads. The solution is first given as a convolution of the Green’s function of the plate. Poles of the integrand in the integral representation of the solution are identified for different cases of the foundation damping and the load frequency. The theorem of residue is then utilized to evaluate the generalized integral of the frequency response function. A closed-form solution is obtained in terms of the Bessel and Hankel functions corresponding to the frequency response function of the plate under a harmonic circular load. The result is partially verified by comparing the static solution of a point source obtained in this paper to a well-known result. This analytical representation permits one to construct fast algorithms for parameter identification in pavement nondestructive test.
