The present study develops the dispersion and attenuation characteristics of Rayleigh wave regulations through a pre-stressed Voigt type viscoelastic strip of finite thickness. The displacement expressions of Rayleigh wave in the strip are introduced. The complex frequency equation of the wave motion is thus obtained. We have studied the effects of initial stress, attenuation coefficients and dissipation factor on the phase and damped velocities simultaneously.
