DISPERSION OF GENERALIZED RAYLEIGH WAVES IN THE HALF-PLANE COVERED WITH PRE-STRETCHED TWO LAYERS UNDER COMPLETE CONTACT
In this paper the dispersion of the generalized Rayleigh wave propagation in the non-prestressed half-plane covered with pre-stretched two layers under complete contact conditions is investigated by 3-D linearized theory of elasticity. The layers and the half-plane are assumed that elastic, homogeneous, isotropic, and the complete contact conditions are existed. The inter phase zone between the upper layer and half-plane is modeled by this second layer. The purpose of the investigation is the determination on the effect of the existence of the second layer to the considered generalized Rayleigh wave propagation velocity. For this purpose, firstly the same materials were selected for both layers and the results obtained in previous studies for a single layer in the literature were verified, the accuracy of the modeling was shown, and then the effect of the second layer on the considered problem was shown by selecting the different materials and applying different initial pre-stresses. Consequently, the present study can be considered as the investigation of the existence of the inter phase zone which is characteristic one for the composite materials to the dispersion of the generalized Rayleigh wave propagation. Numerical results obtained and discussed.
