abstract

Expressions are derived for the horizontal and vertical displacements at an arbitrary depth within a homogeneous, isotropic, elastic half space when plane harmonic P, SV or SH waves are incident at any given angle. On the basis of the reciprocity theorem, these expressions represent also the far-field polar radiation patterns of P, SV and SH waves due to horizontal and vertical forces applied at a point within the half space. Numerical results for a few selected values of depth are shown for a solid half space.
