The secular equation for surface waves in compact form is derived after developing the mathematical model. The phase velocity and attenuation coefficient are obtained for stiffness and then deduced for normal stiffness, tangential stiffness and welded contact. The dispersion curves for these quantities are illustrated to depict the effect of stiffness and thermal relaxation times. The amplitudes of displacements, temperature and concentration are computed at the free plane boundary. Specific loss of energy is obtained and presented graphically. The effects of rotation on phase velocity, attenuation coefficient and amplitudes of displacements, temperature change and concentration are depicted graphically. Some Special cases of interest are also deduced and compared with known results.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_514354_5611efd0659aa849e2c3d0d9c8d4c2ba.pdf
