Abstract

Here we investigate the conditions of inhomogeneous plane waves propagation in monoclinic crystals subject to initial electromechanical fields. We obtain the components of the electroacoustic tensor for the class 2, resp. m, of the monoclinic system. For particular isotropic directional bivectors we derive the decomposition of the propagation condition, and we show that the specific coefficients are similar to the case of guided wave propagation in monoclinic crystals subject to a bias.
