Abstract: A mathematical model for analyzing horizontally polarized shear surface (SH) waves propagating in laminated plates is presented. All the layers are assumed to have monoclinic symmetry. Three types of boundary conditions imposed on the outer surfaces of a plate are considered. A variant of the modified transfer matrix (MTM) method is developed. Closed form dispersion relations are obtained for plates consisting of one or two orthotropic layers. Asymptotic solutions for orthotropic two- and three-layered plates are derived.
