Abstract

Rayleigh-type surface waves propagating in an incompressible isotropic half-space of non-conducting magnetoelastic material are studied for a half-space subjected to a finite pure homogeneous strain and a uniform magnetic field. First, the equations and boundary conditions governing linearized incremental motions superimposed on an initial motion and underlying electromagnetic field are derived and then specialized to the quasimagnetostatic approximation. The magnetoelastic material properties are characterized in terms of a 'total' isotropic energy density function that depends on both the deformation and a Lagrangian measure of the magnetic induction. The problem of surface wave propagation is then analyzed for different directions of the initial magnetic field and for a simple constitutive model of a magnetoelastic material in order to evaluate the combined effect of the finite deformation and magnetic field on the surface wave speed. It is found that a magnetic field in the considered (sagittal) plane in general destabilizes the material compared with the situation in the absence of a magnetic field, and a magnetic field applied in the direction of wave propagation is more destabilizing than that applied perpendicular to it.
