This paper is concerned with an investigation into the existence of waves propagating along a free edge of an orthotropic plate, where the edge is inclined at arbitrary angle to a principal direction of the material. After deriving the governing equation and edge conditions, an edge wave ansatz is substituted into this system to reduce it to a set of algebraic equations for the edge wave wave number and wave vector. These are solved numerically for several typical composite materials althoughdoi:10.1121/1.1506686 pmid:12430790 fatcat:nzn4wyrkwjhszbbdym7jdevbgu
