Ground Waves Propagation

Ground waves transmit energy from vibration sources, which are described in Section 1.3. The transmitting of vibration energy occurs because ground tends to reach the state of a minimum energy when disturbed by vibration (e.g. Ground disturbance by a vibration source causes occurrence of stress waves, which transmit the source energy in the form of energy flux.
