New type of guided acoustic waves revealed

Editor’s Highlight—

 

This paper addresses the existence and nature of waves that travel on intersections between objects arranged in three dimensions, such as fractures is a rock mass. By combining theoretical and experimental results, the authors show the existence of various modes of seismic wave propagation and contribute to a better understanding of attenuation through fractured media.
