Abstract: Analysis of stresses and displacements due to Rayleigh waves that are produced by nuclear burst on surface of semi-infinite elastic half space causing time decaying pressure pulse that acts over circular surface area of increasing radius; numerical example is presented in which Rayleigh stresses at various depths and locations are given; use for practical design purposes, such as in design of underground facilities.
