    • Abstract

       

      The disturbance and propagation of SH-type waves in an anisotropic soil layer overlying an inhomogeneous elastic half-space by a moving stress discontinuity is considered. Stress discontinuity moves with non-uniform velocity and is impulsive in nature. The displacements are obtained in exact form by themethod due to Cagniard modified by de Hoop. The numerical result is calculated for special cases and the natures are depicted graphically.
