    • Abstract


      Fundamental modes of new dispersive shear-horizontal (SH) acoustic waves propagating in the (6 mm) piezoelectromagnetic plate are studied. These SH-waves can propagate when the following boundary conditions are exploited for both the upper and lower surfaces of the plate: (1) when the surfaces are mechanically free, electrically and magnetically closed and (2) when the surfaces are mechanically free, electrically and magnetically open. The SH-waves depend on the electromagnetic wave speed $V_{\text{EM}} = 1/\sqrt{(\varepsilon \mu)}$ and can only exist when the electromagnetic constant $\alpha \neq 0$. The calculations (first evidence) were performed for the PZT-5H–Terfenol-D which is a composite with a large value of $\alpha$. The limit cases of large values of $\alpha (\alpha^{2} = 0.5\varepsilon \mu, \alpha^{2} = 0.9\varepsilon \mu)$, and $\alpha^{2} = 0.99\varepsilon \mu$) are studied because they satisfy the limitation condition of $\alpha^{2} < \varepsilon \mu$.
