In this study, propagation of two-dimensional transient shear waves in viscoelastic cylindrical layered media is investigated. The multilayered medium consists of N different isotropic, homogeneous and linearly viscoelastic layers with two discrete relaxation times. A numerical technique which combines the Fourier transform with the method of characteristics is employed to obtain the solutions.
