APPLICABILITY OF FLOQUET-TYPE SOLUTIONS TO BOUNDED LAYERED COMPOSITES
It is shown that certain Floquet-type solutions describing the propagation of horizontally polarized shear waves in an infinite, periodically layered, elastic composite can be considered applicable to composites with boundaries. In particular, this is the case for layered plates with traction-free and rigidly constrained bounding planes, as well as for a layered half-space in which different novel types of surface waves can propagate.
