P & S Waves to Strains-liquid solid interface

In summary, the conversation is about finding relevant literature on the topic of P and S wave separation at a liquid-solid interface. The article shared is being discussed and the original poster is looking for further understanding on the strain field near the interface. The specific conditions mentioned include a quiescent liquid above a solid, thermal conduction through the fluid to the interface, and same species/material with 1D thermal conduction.

Welcoming any relevant literature!

Welcome to PF.
Since this is the Earth Sciences thread, the obtuse title probably refers to some seismic issue. I'm not going to guess any more.

What has one tried to find? The title seems to be copied of a title of an article.

P and S wave separation at a liquid-solid interface

Thanks I hadn't seen that article before, but I will read it! Looking to understand the qualities of the strain field near the solid-liquid interface given:

1) quiescent liquid sitting above the solid below
2) thermal conduction that begins through the fluid conducting to the interface with the solid below
3) same species/material
4) 1D thermal conduction
 

Related to P & S Waves to Strains-liquid solid interface

1. What are P and S waves?

P and S waves are types of seismic waves that are generated by earthquakes or other seismic events. P waves, also known as primary waves, are compressional waves that travel through the Earth's interior at a faster speed than S waves. S waves, also known as secondary waves, are transverse waves that travel slower than P waves and can only travel through solid materials.

2. How do P and S waves interact with the liquid-solid interface?

P and S waves behave differently when they encounter a liquid-solid interface. P waves can travel through both liquid and solid materials, but their speed decreases when they enter a liquid. S waves, on the other hand, cannot travel through liquids and are completely reflected when they encounter a liquid-solid interface.

3. What is the significance of studying P and S waves at the liquid-solid interface?

Studying P and S waves at the liquid-solid interface can provide valuable information about the structure and composition of the Earth's interior. The behavior of these waves at the interface can help scientists understand the properties of the materials they are traveling through, which can aid in the study of plate tectonics, earthquakes, and other geological processes.

4. How are P and S waves used to measure strains at the liquid-solid interface?

P and S waves can be used to measure strains at the liquid-solid interface by analyzing the changes in their speed and direction as they travel through different materials. By measuring the changes in these waves, scientists can calculate the amount of strain or deformation that has occurred at the interface.

5. Can P and S waves be used to predict earthquakes at the liquid-solid interface?

P and S waves can provide valuable information about the Earth's interior and can help scientists understand the potential for earthquakes. However, they cannot be used to predict earthquakes at the liquid-solid interface with complete accuracy. Other factors, such as the location and intensity of the seismic event, must also be considered in earthquake prediction.
