The normal modes of a uniform, compressible Maxwell half-space

Detlef Wolf
The analytical solution for the load-induced deformation of a uniform, compressible, hydrostatically pre-stressed elastic half-space is derived. The solution is correct to first order in the quantity e, which is inversely proportional to the wave number k of the deformation. Usually e is very small compared with unity for Earth deformations on a scale amenable to the halfspace approximation. Since pre-stress advection is included in the analysis, the correspondence principle allows us to solve the...
