Abstract : Experimental studies of ground wave propagation along mixed paths have been conducted using laboratory models. The experimental configurations studied correspond to propagation perpendicular to a coastline, propagation oblique to a coastline, and propagation across three section paths (such as across a river or isthmus). The laboratory models were not intended to be scale models of any particular terrestrial mixed paths, but rather were used to evaluate the accuracy of approximate theoretical solutions. The agreement between theory and experiment was good for all configurations, indicating a high degree of accuracy for the theoretical solutions. (Author)
