In this paper the generation and propagation ofSH-type waves due to stress discontinuíty in a linear viscoelastic layered medium is studied. Using Fourier transforms and complex contour integration technique, the displacement is evaluated at the free surface in closed form for two special types of stress discontinuity created at the interface. The numerical result for displacement component is evaluated for different values of nondimensional station (distance) and is shown graphically. Graphs are compared with the corresponding graph of classical elastic case.
