Abstract : Using the equations of motion from linear elasticity, the formal solutions to a class of non-axisymmetric wave propagation problems involving a transversely isotropic plate are obtained. Inversion, on the epicentral axis and for a certain class of materials, is carried out explicitly for the particular problem of the application of a point shear load, with a 'ramp' time-dependence, to one face of the plate, and the results are analyzed numerically for several anisotropic and isotropic solids.
