#### Seismic Rayleigh waves on an exponentially graded, orthotropic half-space

(The Royal Society, 2007)

Efforts at modelling the propagation of seismic waves in half-spaces with continuously varying properties have mostly been focused on shear-horizontal waves. Here, a sagittally polarized (Rayleigh type) wave travels along ...

#### Shear instability in skin tissue

(Oxford University Press, 2013)

We propose two toy-models to describe, predict and interpret the wrinkles appearing on the surface of skin when it is sheared. With the first model, we account for the lines of greatest tension present in human skin by ...

#### Oblique wrinkles

(The Royal Society Publishing, 2017-04-03)

We prove theoretically that when a soft solid is subjected to an extreme deformation, wrinkles can form on its surface at an angle that is oblique to a principal direction of stretch. These oblique wrinkles occur for a ...

#### Non-principal surface waves in deformed incompressible materials

(Elsevier, 2005)

The Stroh formalism is applied to the analysis of infinitesimal surface wave propagation in a statically, finitely and homogeneously deformed isotropic half-space. The free surface is assumed to coincide with one of the ...

#### Surface waves in a deformed isotropic hyperelastic material subject to an isotropic internal constraint

(Elsevier, 2004)

An isotropic elastic half-space is prestrained so that two of the principal axes of strain lie in the bounding plane, which itself remains free of traction. The material is subject to an isotropic constraint of arbitrary ...

#### Surface waves in a stretched and sheared incompressible elastic material

(2005)

In this paper, we analyze the effect of a combined pure homogeneous strain and simple shear in a principal plane of the latter on the propagation of surface waves for an incompressible isotropic elastic half-space whose ...

#### Surface waves and surface stability for pre-stretched, unconstrained, non-linearly elastic half-space

(Elsevier, 2009-06)

An unconstrained, non-linearly elastic, semi-infinite solid is maintained in a state of large static plane strain. A power¿law relation between the pre-stretches is assumed and it is shown that this assumption is well ...

#### Piezoelectric Love waves on rotated Y-cut mm2 substrates

(IEEE, 2006-11)

Consider a layer consisting of a m3m dielectric crystal, with faces cut parallel to a symmetry plane. Then bond it onto a semi-infinite mm2 piezoelectric substrate. For an X- or Y-cut of the substrate, a Love wave can ...

#### Surface acoustic waves in rotating orthorhombic crystals

(The Royal Society, 2004-02-08)

The propagation of surface (Rayleigh) waves over a rotating orthorhombic crystal is studied. The crystal possesses three crystallographic axes, normal to the symmetry planes: the half¿space is cut along a plane normal to ...
