Paper Abstract

In this contribution we solve the classic Lamb's wave problem for a granular medium. The surface displacements of a granular half-space resulting from a harmonic point force are the subject of investigation. We have found analytical solutions in several cases: (1) quasi-elastic wave in the medium free of internal friction, (2) anelastic wave in case of the infinite sound velocity, (3) anelastic longitudinal wave in case of the finite sound velocity.
