Body Waves can propagate through the body of an elastic solid and are nondescriptive. Velocity of Body waves remains same by changing frequency. Two types as: Surface Waves can propagate only along the boundary of solid. Two types are:
e a rth q u a k e .
S-Waves (Transverse waves) propagate by a pure shear in a direction perpendicular to the direction of wave travel. P-Waves (Longitudinal waves) propagate by compressional dilation uniaxial strains in the direction of wave travel. Rayliegh Waves propagate along boundary between two dissimilar solid media, in a plane perpendicular to the surface and containing the direction of propagation. Love Waves are polarized shear wave with an associa..
