Shear Wave Propagation in Rocks


WE have demonstrated striking similarities in elastic wave propagation through rocks and single crystals in recent experiments. In particular, we find that two shear waves with displacements perpendicular to one another and with differing velocities are often propagated through rocks. This is illustrated in Fig. 1 at 5 kb pressure for samples of slate and… (More)
