The problems of coupled physical fields, such as the interaction of mechanical and electromagnetic fields, piezoelectric effect, electrostriction and others, are the most urgent. The study of the issues of wave propagation in piezoelectric materials is also relevant. In this paper the propagation of a monochromatic electroelastic signal in a semi-infinite piezoelectric layer is considered. Let’s consider different cases of the boundary conditions, from which localized vibrations can be obtained in the vicinity of the free edge.
