ASH-source in an elastic half-space with a non-homogeneous surface layer

  • Sakti Kanta Chakrabarty
Article

Summary

The response of an elastic half-space with a non-homogeneous surface layer due to aSH-source operating in the non-homogeneous layer of an elastic half-space have been studied. The elastic and physical constants vary exponentially in the surface layer. The surface displacement consists of several integrals. On approximate evaluation of these integrals, they are identified as direct or reflected pulses.
