    • Abstract


      The present study aims to study the propagation of Rayleigh-type wave in a layer, composed of isotropic viscoelastic material of Voigt type, with the effect of yielding base and rigid base in two distinct cases.With the aid of an analytical treatment, closed-form expressions of phase velocity and damped velocity for both the cases are deduced. As a special case of the problem it is found that obtained results are in good agreement with the established standard results existing in the literature. It is established through the study that volume viscoelastic and shear-viscoelastic material parameter and yielding parameter have significant effect on phaseand damped velocities of Rayleigh-type wave in both the cases. Numerical calculations and graphical illustration have been carried out for both the considered cases in the presence and the absence of viscoelasticity. Acomparative study has been performed to analyse the effect of layer with yielding base, traction-free base and rigid base on the phase and damped velocities of Rayleigh-type wave.
