Approximation of the Rayleigh wave speed

Abstract

This brief note describes an asymptotic technique for accurate computation of the Rayleigh wave speed both in compressible isotropic and incompressible orthotropic half-spaces. As opposed to recent publications by Malischewsky and Ogden & Vinh, the Cardan’s formula for solving cubic equations is not used. A variant of Graeffe’s method for finding the moduli… (More)
