Abstract

The Partial Wave Method is unique in that it establishes a foundation on which various elastodynamic guided waves can be compared. In this paper, the method is used to compare quasi-Rayleigh waves and Rayleigh waves, and investigate the eccentricities of the Partial Wave Method at phase velocities equal to the Rayleigh wave speed. The comparison results in the definition of two types of quasi-Rayleigh waves and an explanation for quasi-Rayleigh wave behavior reported in the literature at frequencies that do not satisfy Viktorov's quasi-Rayleigh wave condition. These conclusions are also verified by the superposition of A0 and S0 mode wave-structures calculated using the semi-analytical finite element method.
