"The continuous shear wave generator was designed to be the first instrument capable of producing a continuous high frequency signal below the weathered layer of the earth. This is to be accomplished by placing the instrument in a bore hole and lowering it below the weathered layer where the higher frequencies are severely attenuated. The generator produced a measurable signal output with the output force being approximately 11 pounds force. Testing of the generator showed the necessity of using a spring system with a low natural frequency. The testing also indicated several improvements which should be made in the generator in order to obtain a greater force output"--Abstract, page ii.
