The Partition of Amplitudes for an SV-Wave by Zoeppritz's Method


Silgado Ferro, Enrique (1944) The Partition of Amplitudes for an SV-Wave by Zoeppritz's Method. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/TE6G-AW85.


Our problem is to find the amplitude ratios under specific boundary conditions. First, let us deduce the relations between the different amplitudes in the usual manner (Macelwane 1.). We are dealing with plane waves in isotropic media and the boundary surface between both media is a plane. The energy of the incident wave is partitioned among the generated waves.
