A study is made of the axisymmetric problem of wave
propagation under the influence of
gravity in a micropolar viscoelastic semi-infinite
medium when a time varying axisymmetric loading is
applied on the surface of the medium. Special attention is
given to the effects of gravity which induces a
kind of initial stress of a hydrostatic nature on the wave propagation.
