Surface instability of a homogeneous half-space coupled with a finite number of laminas

In the context of the model of a piecewise-homogeneous medium in three-dimensional formulation we study the problem of the surface loss of stability in laminated semi-bounded media with a finite number of laminas. For the study we invoke a version of three-dimensional stability theory constructed for small pre-critical deformations when the pre-critical state is determined from the geometrically linear theory. To construct the resolvent characteristic equations we use the matrix representation of the basic relations.

Using a computer we carry out a numerical study of the stability of a homogeneous half-space coupled to various numbers of laminas, and we conduct a comparative analysis of the results.
