Surface Waves In Homogeneous Visco-Elastic Media Of Higher Order Under The Influence Of Gravity And Surface Stresses

Munish Sethi, Ramakant Bhardwaj, Arvind kamal Sharma


The aim of the present paper is to investigate the surface waves in a homogeneous, isotropic, visco-elastic solid medium of nth order, including time rate of strain under the influence of gravity and surface stresses. The theory of generalized surface waves is developed to investigate particular cases of waves such as the Stoneley, Rayleigh and Love waves. Corresponding equations have been obtained for different cases. These reduced to classical results, when the effects of gravity, surface stresses and viscosity are ignored.

Keywords: Gravity, Surface waves, Visco-elasticity, Surface stresses.
