Abstract

When an elastic solid is bounded, it can support waves traveling along the boundary, such as the free surface. Waves that travel along the surface are called surface waves. Surface waves are generally characterized as dispersive; that is, each frequency component travels at a different speed. Based on the elastic wave theory described in Appendix A, we now review the nature of surface-wave propagation.
