Abstract

"This research is a mathematical investigation of the propagation of a Love wave in a Voigt viscoelastic medium. A solution to the partial differential equation of motion is assumed and is shown to satisfy the three necessary boundary conditions. Velocity restrictions on the wave and the media are developed and are shown to be of the same form as those governing the elastic Love wave"--Abstract, page ii.
