Elastic Waves in Transversely Isotropic Media

  • Fedor I. Fedorov


Christoffel’s equation (15.21) splits up into one linear equation and one quadratic one for any direction of the wave normal only in the case of a hexagonal crystal or a transversely isotropic medium; this is the only case in which it has a comparatively simple general solution .
