Abstract

Surface waves at a free interface of a saturated porous medium are investigated. Existence and peculiarities of surface wave propagation were revealed. Two types of surface waves proved possible: true surface wave, propagating almost without dispersion, and generalized Rayleigh wave, which attenuates along the propagation direction.
