Boundary layer method in the problem of far propagation of surface SV-waves

The SV polarized wave field is investigated in an elastic gradient layer of constant width. A point source is situated on the boundary of the layer. Rigid contact conditions are assumed to be valid on the boundary between the layer and an elastic half-space. It is shown that the interference field in the principal approximation far from the source does not depend on the relation between the phase velocity and the transversal and longitudinal velocities in the half-space. Bibliography: 11 titles.
