    • Abstract


      Garvin’s variant of the Cagniard technique has been used to evaluate exactly the displacements at points within a homogeneous, isotropic, perfectly elastic, solid half space due to a buried explosive line source. The disturbance at any given time is confined to a region bounded by the free surface of the half space and theP wave front within it. The disturbance associated with the Rayleigh pulse affects a smaller region bounded by the free surface and the PP wave front.
