A system of periodic elastic strips (each one considered as a piece of a plate) is characterized by a matrix relation between the Bloch series of displacement and traction at the bottom side of the system. Both these mechanical fields are involved in the boundary conditions at the contact plane between the strips and the substrate supporting a Rayleigh wave. The analysis exploits the mechanical field expansion over the plate modes, including complex modes; numerical results satisfy the energy conservation law satisfactorily. The derived planar harmonic Green’s function provides an alternative tool for investigation of surface waves propagation under periodic elastic strips, with respect to pure numerical methods mostly applied in the surface acoustic wave devices literature. Perfect agreement of the presented theory with the experimentally verified perturbation model of thin strips is demonstrated.

A contour map of the matrix ∣T∣—its characteristic V-like shape (shown upside down) indicates a localized spectrum dependence on the modal number; the spectra of 183rd and 91st modes are drawn in thick lines. Thin frame shows the truncated spectrum.

Dependence of the diagonal elements of the lowest Bloch cells of H on strip thickness d (there is a resonance at d≈0.19λt). Inset: The dependence of H on r nicely compares to the perturbation theory prediction.
