The Scattering of SH-Wave Caused by Subsurface Circular Cavities in a Layered Half-Space
The scattering of SH-wave caused by the subsurface circular cavities in an elastic half-space covered with an elastic layer was discussed, which was based on the complex function method ,wave functions expansion method and big circular arc postulation method in which the circular boundary of large radius was used to approximate straight boundary of surface elastic layer. By the theory of Helmholtz, the general solution of the Biot’s wave function was achieved. Utilizing the complex series expansion technology and the boundary conditions, we could transform the present problem into the problem in which we needed to solve the infinite linear algebraic equations with unknown coefficients in wave functions. Finally, the dynamic stress concentration factors around the circular cavities were discussed in numerical examples.
