Abstract

This treatise is the continuation of another study that I published under a similar title about a year ago; thus, I shall start with a summary of this older work.

As a consequence of [overburden] pressure or layering—or both—rocks can by no means be regarded as being globally isotropic. On the contrary, the potential of elastic forces in a horizontally layered rock and [vertical] pressure must contain five elastic constants. One has

[are (related to) the strain components]. Moreover, it has turned out that the wave surface decouples into an ellipsoid of rotation and another very complicated surface of rotation. The equation of the meridional section of the ellipsoid is
