Waves on Rough Surfaces
The problem of surface waves, in particular, Rayleigh wave propagation along rough surfaces is of considerable interest related, first of all, to the fact that surface acoustic wave acoustoelectronic devices are widely fabricated at present. Since the cost of these devices grows with increasing surface quality, it is very desirable to have a criterion for permissible surface quality. The knowledge of the laws of surface acoustic wave attenuation and dispersion caused by roughness is important also for seismology, for environmental acoustics, for physical investigations of solid surfaces and for nondestructive surface testing.
