The secular equation for surface acoustic waves propagating on a monoclinic elastic half-space is derived in a direct manner, using the method of first integrals. Although the motion is at first assumed to correspond to generalized plane strain, the analysis shows that only two components of the mechanical displacement and of the tractions on planes parallel to the free surface are nonzero. Using the Stroh formalism, a system of two second order differential equations is found for the remaining… CONTINUE READING
