Rayleigh critical angle experiments on a water-solid interface have been performed on samples ranging from single crystals to polycrystalline alloys and glasses. Two basic conclusions can be drawn from this work 1 linear equations of motion which include anisotropy suffice for an approximate description of the observations, including the calculation of critical angles from second order elastic constants and 2 at and near the Rayleigh critical angle, anomalous production of harmonics is observed.
