This paper describes a theoretical study pertaining to the effect of the viscosity and density of an adjacent viscous fluid on the characteristics of Love waves propagating in a layered half-space medium. Expressions for the Love wave velocity and attenuation are obtained as functions of the viscosity and density of the fluid by exact and asymptotic analyses. The valid range of the asymptotic solution is identified by comparing it with the exact solution.
